EASY Sesame Snap Pea and Shrimp Stir Fry

I'm on a big shrimp kick.  I would love for whole foods to carry raw shrimp from somewhere other than Thailand...  Straight from garden to table this was super easy and quick to make for dinner.  The peas were picked just this morning and so tender they barely needed any heat.

1/2 onion roughly chopped
lots of garlic (5 cloves?) roughly chopped
toasted sesame oil
olive oil
grated ginger enough for taste
raw shrimp peeled and cleaned

1 - 2 tbs soy sauce
dash of hot sesame oil
1 tbs corn starch
2 tbs warm water
1 tbs hoisin or oyster sauce

brown rice - I cooked mine with chicken stock and a bit of butter

Over medium heat add enough of the oils to cook the onion and garlic.
Cook onion and garlic quickly until lightly browned not too high of heat or the sesame oil will burn
add the ginger (to taste)
toss in shrimp and cook for 2 minutes until totally pink (DON'T OVER COOK)
stir together all sauce ingredients and add to stir fry mixture turn up heat until sauce comes together 2 minutes max.  Serve over rice.
Voila.  Super easy and VERY tasty.  There wasn't a bite left.


  1. I love this recipe! It looks really simple to make (as your title suggests), and it looks beautiful. I like how you made your own sauce, all ingredients that I have too :)

    Definitely going to bookmark this, and followed you on Twitter too. You have a great blog!
