Chinese Stir Fry Shrimp with Eggs and Basil is a twist on the is a traditional Chinese Stir Fry Shrimp with Eggs (蝦仁炒蛋) dish.  It’s a super easy and yummy dish to make!  Basil adds a delicious flavor to this traditional and common Chinese dish. 

So, for the shrimp, I recommend buying wild caught shrimp and not farm raised, but you don’t have to.  I personally do because I am allergic to farm raised shrimp – I break out in hives!  I did some research and figured out it’s most likely due to the awful things the shrimps are fed and the awful environments they live in.  So I highly recommend eating wild shrimps for this one!  Anyway, on to the recipe…
