Easter this weekend; so this Friday Lent will end. If you want to try a recipe that is a little different, but very good, give this Shrimp Stir Fry Recipe with Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice a try. I didn’t know how much difference it would make in the flavor to fresh squeeze the orange juice, but I think it defiantly was a nice added touch to the recipe. This is a simple recipe with not much cooking time, because the shrimp cooks quickly; but it does take some time to cook the rice and chop up the vegetables.
If you’re looking for a really good recipe to finish off the Lenten season give this Shrimp Stir Fry Recipe with Fresh Squeezed Orange Juice a try. Enjoy
