Shrimp Stir Fry Freezer Pack

Freezer-to-skillet stir fry! With bell peppers, sugar snap peas, carrots and broccoli. Quick and speedy in just 10 min.

After making that cilantro lime chicken freezer meal, I’ve been kind of hooked.

Because freezer meals are just absolutely genius.

Whether you’re a new mom, a fresh-out-of-high-school college student, or a millennial working 40-60 hour weeks, these will quickly become your lifeline.

Just prep during the weekends – and I promise, it won’t take long – so you can take these packs right out of the freezer and straight to the skillet.

Now this is my all-time favorite stir fry sauce.

Plus, the shrimp will marinate as it freezes.

So basically, we all win here. And we’re saving time.

Here’s an added bonus.

You can serve this over a bowl of brown rice, and take the leftovers to work the very next day.

I have done something similar — using shrimp, sliced chicken breast, or sliced beef steak — and putting together single-serving stir-fry freezer packs.

It came in super handy when I laid up a few years ago after brain surgery. I had a couple of weeks to prepare, and I knew I’d be “kitchen-challenged” for several weeks while I was recovering and on some pretty wicked meds. I knew I’d need simple, easy-to-prepare meals. I prepped a bunch of these single-serving stir fry packs and loaded the freezer. I managed to eat well until I was cleared to drive again and able to tackle a multi-step recipe without fogging out. 🙂

Thank you- great idea. Perfect for this working mom!
One question- do you defrost it first or just dump it in the pan frozen?

Nope, no need to defrost! 🙂

Do you have to thaw it out first or do you just cook it from the frozen stage?

You can cook from its frozen state.

The idea is great! I remember doing this when I was studying for my master’s degree and I wanted to have some backup in my freezer, for any of those moments when I was suddenly out of food. Sure, I wasn’t using shrimp because ‘poor student’, but again, it’s the idea that matters. 🙂

Great recipe! Please continue to add more Freezer Pack recipes in the future- they are weekday lifesavers!!

Love this! It’s perfect for busy weeknights with kids. More please.

Btw, both my daughter and I love this sauce as well. We make your sheet pan Asian stir fry at least once a month. 🙂

This looks so damn delicious! Do you think crab or chicken would work as a substitute for shrimp?

When do you add the sesame seeds and green onions? Also, I had to use frozen shrimp as could not find any that were not? I just tossed the frozen shrimp in the sauce..do you think this will be ok? Thanks!

The sesame seeds and green onions are garnishes to be added, if desired, at the end prior to serving. And yes, since this is technically a prep ahead frozen meal, you can toss the frozen shrimp right in the sauce. That should work fine.

The frozen shrimp turned out great! My husband loved this

Could you cook this from the freezer on a sheet pan instead? If so at what temp and for how long?

Unfortunately, without further recipe testing, I cannot answer with certainty. As always, please use your best judgment regarding substitutions and modifications.

I mirror the others on how great this is and easy to prep in advance. I like to try new things and modify on occasion. The last time I made this, I threw in a bunch of leftovers. Some black beans, andouille sausage, cut off some corn on the cob from a cookout, threw in some rice and other goodies. I have not found anything yet that does not somehow enhance the flavor so give it a go on your next attempt. You get rid of the leftovers and have a special surprise meal every time you make it.

I dread bringing meals to neighbors because I never know what to make! Pinning this to make the next time an occasion arises, although I think I may try it for my family too. Thanks Chungah!

Have you had any success swapping chicken or beef for the shrimp?

I actually have not but I don’t see why it wouldn’t work!

Hello! I live in Colorado and unfortunately all the shrimp I have found is frozen or previously frozen. I don’t want to refreeze defrosted shrimp for obvious reasons. If I prepare the other ingredients and freeze those I could keep the shrimp separate, defrost, peel, and add in the last couple minutes of cooking? Would that be the best way around it? This looks so delicious!

Yes, keeping the shrimp separate is a great idea!

Just stumbled onto your blog. Great stuff! One request- I’d love to see all of your recipes include serving suggestions for side dishes that will make a complete family meal. Yes. I’m that pathetic- i need ideas! 😉

Come join me in my culinary adventures where we’ll be using simple, fresh ingredients and transforming them into sophisticated and elegant meals for the everyday home cook.
