Notes

If you want to make this recipe vegan, exchange the shrimp with firm tofu cubes. 
We like our clean eating shrimp stir fry with a little chili kick. You can add a fresh chili, chili flakes or even a little bit of garlic chili paste to obtain your desired heat level.
You can cook this in a wok or frying pan. Do not to overcrowd the pan. That would steam the vegetables and that is not the effect you are going for. Instead, you want alot of surface room so you can quickly stir fry your shrimp and vegetables so they stay crisp and delicious.
