Gingered stir fry shrimps with snow peas.

Stir fry is not something that we prepare often at the house. Therefore we looked forward to a fun dinner of gingered stir fry shrimps with snow peas. One first too, eating sweet snow peas at home. We love them when we eat at Asian restaurants. Hence, the thought of having them home was well received from my crew.

Once you start cooking, you will realize that is a very fast cooking recipe that requires you to have all your ingredients ready to go at once. As per the instruction below, it will only take 10 minutes to have this delicious vegetarian, low carb recipe on your plate.

If you like a bit of heat, add a couple of shakes of chili oil or chili pepper flakes. That would be a great addition to this recipe by bringing in a bit of heat.

Steamed white rice is the perfect partner to this dish. Start the rice early and keep it warm.

Nasi Goreng rice will make it a fun full dinner and marry well with the Gingered stir fry shrimps with snow peas.

Wok or not?

As you can see here I used my skillet to prepare this fantastic dish. Keep the heat to high and watch it as your life on dependent on it. It will burn very fast under your watchful eye. If you have a nonstick, it will be perfect too.

However, I use my wok with most of my stir fry cooking. More fun, and when the shrimps are cooked you can push them up the walls of the wok to keep warm and give the snap peas the last minute searing.
