shrimp - mushroom stir fry

category: main dish
serving: 6

when i was in the grocery buying frozen chicken parts i saw this packs and lots of packs of different sizes os ahrimps. the smaller frozen shrimps caught my attention and i grabbed one. i thought of mixing it withsome vegetables.

i did cook it with mushroom. in cooking, shrimp only takes a few minutes to cook, let's say 4-5 minutes. shrimps have the tendency to hardened and get tough when eaten if it is overcooked.

3 cloves garlic, minced
1 onion, sliced
1 tsp. ginger, julienned
1 cup small frozen shrimps, thawed
1/3 cup canned button mushroom, quartered
1 small carrots, sliced thinly
2 cups cabbage, shredded
1 tnsp. butter
fresh ground black pepper
lemon juice

in a bowl, season the shrimp with salt, pepper and juice of half the lemon. mix well and set aside.

in a pan, heat butter and saute garlic, onion and ginger until fragrant.

add the shrimp and cook for 2 minutes. then add the mushroom and stir for another minute.

then add the carrot and cabbage. season with salt and pepper. stir fry for another minute until the vegetables are cooked but still crispy.
