Chinese Shrimp and Mushrooms

Chinese shrimp and mushrooms are a great little dish you can whip up for your family within a short time. Always nice to make something different!

Chinese Shrimp and Mushrooms

Every now and then I’m looking to make a little something different. My instincts tell me to throw some shrimp together and make a nice seafood dish. You add in some mushrooms and you have a delightful tasting meal that will hit all the food groups. This will serve 4 people.

To be honest, I love to stir fry all types of meat with the seasonal vegetables around the house. In this case we take some local shrimp and mushrooms for that crisp crackling sound in the stir fry. Even though there aren’t any extreme added spices, this is one dish rich in flavor!

The tenderness of the fried shrimp combined with the beautiful aroma of the mushrooms is incredible! A must have for any mushroom lover for sure!
