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…
