A quick meal doesn’t have to mean a boring meal. This garlic ginger shrimp recipe is a winner when you’re short on time. Just make sure the shrimps are thawed in advance. To make the cooking process even faster, I peel and devein the shrimp in advance also. If you know you’ll be really right on time, mince and chop everything ahead of time and keep it refrigerated until needed. This might end up being the fastest dinner you’ve ever made. I must say, there is quite a prominent taste of ginger, hence the name of the recipe is garlic “ginger” shrimp. I love ginger so it doesn’t seem too overpowering in my opinion. You’re always more than welcome to add less if you’re unsure if you like ginger or not.
