frozen shrimp/fish and stir fry veggies from trader joe's?

hey everyone i had posted a message on here over a month ago regarding simple recipes for a single non-cooker. well i havent tried to really cook yet, usually i just broil fish or saute some frozen veggies or whatever cuz i'm usually too lazy to cut up stuff. so my question is should i just season the shrimp and veggies as they're on the stovetop? what spices and sauces do you usually add to give more oomph (for an asiany flavor)? last time i added trader joe's sesame soy ginger vinegarette to just the veggies, but it didnt really do too much.

also, regarding broiling frozen fish, do you usually defrost the fish all day then marinate it for the best flavor or can i just quick defrost it then marinate it for an hour or 2? last time i did the quick defrost then rubbed olive oil, garlic, salt, pepper and cilantro on the mahi, put it in the fridge for less than an hour then broiled it but it was pretty bland when i tasted it :( i was pretty bummed. anyway, thanks for all your help and hopefully it'll come out better next time!
