Shrimp and Snow Pea Stir-Fry

Another take-out favorite for you! I’ve been using shrimp as often as I can, as they’re less than $5 a pound for large heads-on. And without a doubt, stir-frying is one of my favorite things to do with them. I remembering my mom ordering shrimp with snow peas for “something different” at the local Chinese restaurant when I was a little girl. And, I guess it stuck with me – because it’s still one of my favorites.

There’s just something about the combination of sweet, succulent shrimp and crisp yet tender snow peas. I went ahead and added some broccoli, carrots, and water chestnuts to the mix as well just for a little more variety. I’ve found that if you can buy snow peas in bulk versus pre-packaged, they’re almost always way cheaper and better quality. Everything is tossed with plenty of garlic and scallions, and then you make a quick clear stir-fry sauce with simple ingredients found probably already lurking in your pantry. Another easy weeknight favorite!
