Blackened Shrimp Stir Fry Recipe
Several years ago, my husband and I got really into Crossfit. Initially, I was intimidated by Crossfit, but that intimidation grew into a fierce love for it! I began to realize that I didn’t want to work out to stay lean, but because I wanted to stay healthy! 
Along with dedicating myself to the workouts, I dedicated myself to clean eating. I began counting my macronutrients and searching for dishes that would meet my dietary goals. That’s when I created this blackened shrimp stir fry recipe! Shrimp is such a great food because it’s low in fat and high in protein. While I don’t spend nearly as much time closely monitoring what I eat these days, this blackened shrimp recipe is still on regular rotation at the Murphy residence!
Shrimp Stir Fry Ingredients

To begin this recipe, I like to peel the tails off my shrimp. Some people like to keep the tails on, but I find it’s just more work later on! After peeling the tails, dice the bell peppers, and the prep work is complete.

At this point, melt the butter in a large pan on medium-high heat. Once the butter is melted, throw in the diced bell peppers to saute. I don’t like the bell peppers to be too tender, so I only saute for 2-3 minutes.

Once the peppers are ready, add in the shrimp and season with the Old Bay and salt. Let the shrimp cook for about five minutes while regularly stirring, and this part of the meal is done!

You have different options for cooking the rice. If you want fresh rice, you can cook it while cooking your shrimp. With a toddler, I’m a huge fan of making life a little easier, so I opt for a blend of the three different instant-rices.

And that’s it! This recipe is insanely easy, with just ten minutes of prep time and ten minutes to cook. If you make this recipe, be sure to let me know how it goes on Instagram, I’d love to see your finished meals!
