Shrimp stir fry

Shrimps and fish are one of those foods which get cooked in couple of minutes unlike meat. Shrimp stir fry is what i make when i do not have time cook any elaborate non-vegetarian meals. It's so easy and does not need any much of preparation time as well.

In this shrimp stir fry recipe, I just marinate the shrimps with ginger-garlic paste, paprika, turmeric, salt, olive oil, some garam masala and finally fresh coriander leaves and let it sit for 10 minutes. Then shallow fry or stir fry using few drops of olive oil on a skillet or griddle. That's it, the tasty side dish for lunch menu is ready in just few minutes.
