Mediterranean Stir Fry Recipe

Thank you for sharing!

I get so bored sometimes with “regular” food like spaghetti or meatloaf. Honestly, I can only eat the same thing so many times in a month before my tastebuds are just worn-out. I need a little pick-me-up to make my mouth remember that I do love adventure (maybe just a little). My go-to meal for spicing-up my dinner-life (but still keeping it easy and fast for the kids) is this awesome Mediterranean Stir Fry recipe. My favorite night to make this is when shrimp is the only thing left in the freezer and I feel like I’m 1) splurging because I’m eating shrimp, and 2) cleaning out the freezer a little. It’s like this little perfect-storm of happiness for a moment. Then real-life butts back in and I head to the grocery store. But it’s still a good fantasy!

This is such a fast and easy dinner. I love this Mediterranean Stir-Fry.

Ingredients for Mediterranean Stir Fry

  • 1/2 lb to 1 lb raw shrimp, peeled (or chicken, but really the shrimp is best)
  • 1 cup mushrooms, sliced (fresh or canned, either is fine)
  • 1/3 cup kalamata olives
  • 1 tblspn minced garlic
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 1 cup diced tomatoes (fresh or canned, either is fine, but if you use canned, make sure to drain as much
  • 2 tblspn sesame oil
  • salt and pepper to taste

How to Make Mediterranean Stir Fry

  1. Place wok or frying pan on high heat.
  2. Put garlic, oil, mushrooms and onion in the wok. Stir frequently until onions begin to soften.
  3. Place tomatoes and shrimp in the wok. Stir very frequently until shrimp is cooked completely (meaning pink all the way through).
  4. Place the olives in the mix and stir thoroughly.
  5. Remove from heat and allow to rest for about 5 minutes (I don’t know why, but this makes it taste better). Sometimes, I throw a little feta cheese on top at this point, but not always…
  6. Serve with pasta or rice and enjoy the heck out of it!
