  • Servings: 2
  • Preparation Time:

Ingredients

  • 1 lb medium shrimp (71-90 shrimp per lb)
  • 2 cloves garlic, pressed
  • 1 teaspoon sesame oil
  • ½ tbsp fresh grated ginger
  • Dash of white pepper
  • 1 lb snow peas
  • 1 tbsp sake
  • 1 tsp oyster sauce
  • 1 cup chicken stock
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch dissolved in 1/8 cup water

Directions

  • In a wok over medium high heat, cook the garlic and shrimp in the oil for 3 minutes or until they just turn pink, stirring constantly.
  • Stir in the ginger, pepper, peas, sake, oyster sauce, and chicken broth. Cover and cook 5 minutes longer or until peas are tender but still slightly crisp.
  • Add the cornstarch slurry to the wok and stir until thick and clear, about another minute.

Notes

This is based very loosely on a P.F. Changs recipe. I tried it there, liked it okay, but thought that I could do much better, and so I did =) Their version has green onions, which I dislike. Feel free to add them back in if you so desire.
