Two of my boys are shrimp fanatics. If shrimp is on the menu, that’s the dish they dive for. Hubby and I are also die hard seafood buffs.
In our family, we never turn down a succulent dish of tender shrimp.
Needless to say, this shrimp stir fry with snow peas is a hit at our place. Especially when I break my brown-rice-only rule, and serve it over a mountain of fluffy white rice.
This is one of those homespun recipes that I created in my kitchen. After making and devouring many shrimp stir fries, this is our favorite rendition. It’s simple, fuss-free, and gratifying.
This shrimp is succulent, tender, and delivers a huge burst of flavor the minute you bite into it…
We like using snow peas in this shrimp stir fry, but there are many veggie alternatives. Broccoli, green beans, bok choy, etc. would all work deliciously.
This Asian Shrimp and Snow Peas is so easy to whip up in your big wok, if you have one. If no wok is available, a large frying pan would work just as well.
Shrimp and snow peas makes a tasty, healthy, and quick dinner for any weeknight. Serve it over a fluffy mound of your favorite rice, and voila! Dinner is served.
