Gingered Stir-Fry with Shrimp and Snow Peas

Standard

Snow peas are one of the first spring vegetables to show up in the market. I decided to pair them with some fresh North Carolina White Shrimp for a delicious stir-fry. Add scallions and some fresh ginger cut into matchsticks and you have an absolutely perfect mid-week dinner. You can throw this nutritious supper together even if your are pressed for time by prepping your ingredients in advance. Combine chicken stock, Chinese chili-garlic sauce (Sriracha), soy sauce, and cornstarch and set aside until you are ready to add it to the mix. Serve this easy, flavorful stir-fry over steamed rice for a healthy, satisfying supper.


GINGERED STIR-FRY WITH SHRIMP AND SNOW PEAS (Serves 4)

Ingredients

  • 1/2 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth
  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce
  • 1 teaspoon Chinese chile-garlic sauce
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch
  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/4 cup fresh ginger, cut into fine matchsticks
  • 1/2 pound snow peas
  • 1 pound medium shrimp, shelled and deveined
  • 4 small scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal
  • Steamed rice, for serving

Directions

  1. In a small bowl, whisk the chicken stock with the soy sauce, Chinese chile-garlic sauce and cornstarch.
  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the vegetable oil until shimmering. Add the ginger matchsticks and stir-fry over moderately high heat until they are softened, about 1 minute. Add the snow peas and stir-fry until crisp-tender and the ginger is beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp to the skillet and stir-fry for about 1 minute. Add the scallions and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Whisk the chile sauce, add it to the skillet and stir-fry until the shrimp are opaque throughout and the sauce is thickened, about 1 minute longer. Serve with steamed rice.
