15-Minute Prawn & Broccoli Stir-Fry With Cashews

Yum

This tasty, paleo shrimp and broccoli stir-fry is the easiest and quickest paleo dinner EVER! I have a sneaky method for whipping this meal up in less than 15 minutes, and I am going to tell you how.


Paleo Shrimp Stir-Fry With Broccoli & Cashew Nuts

There are three key ingredients in this dish: raw prawns (or shrimp), broccoli and roasted cashew nuts. You can use raw cashew nuts, in my opinion, the roasted ones are much better for this recipe.

The rest are your easily accessible aromatics and a few sauces, which you can easily get online or in your local health food store. If you’re not familiar with coconut aminos, read this blog post.  You can save even more time by making a batch of my paleo stir-fry sauce to store in the fridge. It can easily be used for this dish.
