Shrimp & Snow Pea Stir-Fry

Shrimp & Snow Pea Stir-Fry

A stir-fry is all about preparation: you need to have everything ready to go before you start the cooking, which actually takes place in a matter of minutes. Serve this stir-fry over brown riceā€”or for a more traditional take, over wilted mustard greens splashed with a little rice vinegar.

  • 2 tablespoon canola oil, divided
  • 1 pound raw shrimp, (21-25 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 3 cups snow peas, trimmed
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, sliced
  • 2 tablespoon minced fresh ginger

Cooking Instruction

Step 1

Heat 1 tablespoon oil in a wok or large nonstick skillet over high heat. Add shrimp and cook, stirring, until pink and beginning to curl, about 1 minute. Transfer the shrimp to a plate (it will finish cooking later).

Step 2

Heat the remaining 1 tablespoon oil in the pan over high heat. Add snow peas, shiitakes and ginger and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, 5 to 7 minutes.

Step 3

Meanwhile, whisk sherry, hoisin, soy sauce, cornstarch and pepper in a small bowl.

Step 4

Stir bean sprouts, the cooked shrimp and the sherry mixture into the snow pea mixture and cook, stirring constantly, until the sauce is slightly thickened and the shrimp are cooked through, 1 to 2 minutes.
