Gingered stir fry shrimps with snow peas.

Last night recipe was a first for us and something new. As you all know by now,  I have an extensive collection of cookbooks.  Yesterday I just wanted to follow a recipe.  Shrimps was the request of the day for dinner, and I happen to have some already at the house.

Stir fry is not something that we do often, eating sweet snow peas, that was a first.

We choose a recipe from Food and Wine that required Chinese chili-garlic sauce. Unfortunately I had none on hand and I was not going to purchase a huge jar, the only size available at the store, and let it expire in the refrigerator.  Also, my son, who is not too fond of hot spicy food, I had therefore  I replaced it with smashed garlic with salt.

A simple bowl of steamed rice was just perfect.

The recipe also mentioned to use a non stick pan, however I do not own one. The result was the same as described on the book. Just had to pay a little closer attention to it. This recipe cooks what seems like so fast, therefore I had no choice but to stay on it.
