Sunny Shrimp Stir Fry

Last updated: June 2023

This dinner is a new twist on a family favorite dish. My family loves stir fry made with loads of teriyaki sauce. The problem is that teriyaki sauce is a higher carb/higher sugar sauce that may not be the best option for those on a reduced carb diet. This recipe features a sauce made up of sunflower seed butter and lite soy sauce in place of teriyaki sauce.
