Shrimp and Snow Pea Stir-Fry

  • Active Time 35m
  • Total Time 35m

4 servings, 1 1/2 cups each

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.

ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons canola oil, divided
  • 1 pound raw shrimp (21 to 25 per pound), peeled and deveined
  • 3 cups snow peas, trimmed
  • 8 ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed, sliced
  • 2 tablespoons minced fresh ginger
  • 1/4 cup dry sherry (see Ingredient Notes)
  • 2 tablespoons hoisin sauce (see Ingredient Notes)
  • 2 tablespoons reduced-sodium soy sauce
  • 2 teaspoons cornstarch
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 3 cups mung bean sprouts

directions

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).

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.

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

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.

Ingredient Notes:

Dry sherry - Don't use the cooking sherry sold in many supermarkets as it can be surprisingly high in sodium. Instead, purchase dry sherry that's sold with other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store.

Hoisin sauce - This dark brown, thick, spicy-sweet sauce is made with soybeans and a complex mix of spices. Look for it in the Chinese section of your supermarket, and in Asian markets.
