Spicy Shrimp Spaghetti

Just because you’re busy doesn’t mean you need to sacrifice the quality of your meals! See for yourself how simple it is to fix up a healthy and hearty lunch using ingredients you’ve got lying around. I almost always have shrimp ready to go in my freezer, so this Thai-inspired spicy shrimp spaghetti didn’t require a trip to the store. Simply create a nice stir-fry starting with the basic aromatics and bind it all together with the oyster sauce and chili oil. The saltiness of the oyster sauce can always be offset by adding a little sugar, and you’ve put together a tasty shrimp spaghetti dish with a spicy kick to help you power through your day!
