Scrambled egg shrimp stir fry is not only great for breakfast but can be served for dinner too. This stir fry is another effortless recipe for preparing a quick weeknight meal. It only takes 20 minutes to make and can be served with rice or noodles.
Eggs for breakfast comes in different forms. You can have them scrambled, sunny-side-up, boiled or whichever you prefer. In baking they create structure and stability within a batter, they help thicken and emulsify sauces and custards. Personally, I like my breakfast with a bread and some scrambled eggs. If I feel like having eggs for dinner, well this is my go-to recipe!
I used beansprouts, green and red bell peppers, garlic and onion for the vegetable ingredients. I prefer them for a colorful combination of different colors and texture. Plus, it makes the dish more inviting. However, this recipe is flexible and you can try other ingredients you fancy. For the protein, shrimps are my choice but removing them is an option. When you have all the ingredients, adding salt, pepper and soy sauce will kick up the taste a notch. I hope you’ll enjoy this recipe as much as I do and rate or share it with your friends!
