  • 1 lb (about 450g) large shrimp, peeled and deveined

  • 2 cups broccoli florets

  • 1 medium bell pepper, sliced (choose your favorite color)

  • 1 medium zucchini, sliced

  • 1/2 cup sliced carrots

  • 2 cloves garlic, minced

  • 1 tablespoon grated ginger

  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce or tamari (for gluten-free option)

  • 1 tablespoon olive oil or avocado oil

  • 1 tablespoon sesame oil

  • 1 tablespoon rice vinegar

  • 1 teaspoon erythritol (or your preferred low-carb sweetener)

  • 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes (optional, for a kick)

  • Salt and pepper to taste

  • Fresh cilantro, chopped (for garnish)

  • Sesame seeds (for garnish)


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the soy sauce (or tamari), rice vinegar, erythritol, red pepper flakes (if using), and half of the minced garlic. This will be our tasty stir-fry sauce.

  2. In a large skillet or wok, heat the olive oil over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp and stir-fry until they turn pink and are cooked through. This should take about 2-3 minutes per side. Once cooked, remove the shrimp from the skillet and set them aside.

  3. In the same skillet, add the sesame oil and the remaining garlic. Sauté for about 30 seconds until fragrant.

  4. Add the broccoli, bell pepper, zucchini, and carrots to the skillet. Stir-fry the veggies for 3-4 minutes until they become slightly tender but still retain some crunch.

  5. Return the cooked shrimp to the skillet with the vegetables.

  6. Pour the prepared stir-fry sauce over the shrimp and vegetables. Toss everything together to coat them evenly with the sauce. Continue cooking for another 1-2 minutes until the sauce thickens slightly.

  7. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Be cautious with the salt if you're using soy sauce as it's already salty.

  8. Once everything is cooked and coated with the sauce, remove the skillet from the heat.

  9. Serve the Shrimp Stir-Fry in two bowls and garnish with chopped cilantro and sesame seeds.
