It doesn’t have to take a long time to prepare a good meal. You can easily whip up a dish using ingredients that complement each other. For this recipe, the crunchy snow peas go well with the sweet and juicy shrimp. The sesame oil and seeds on the other hand makes the dish more aromatic.
500g large peeled prawns (tails intact)
2 tablespoons light soy sauce
2 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
1 2.5cm knob of ginger, cut into matchsticks
400g snow peas
2 spring onions, thinly sliced
2 teaspoons sesame oil
Salt and pepper to taste
Grate the zest of the lime and juice it. Place both ingredients in a bowl and add the soy sauce. Marinate it for 15-30 minutes.
Heat the sesame oil in a wok or large skillet. Sauté the garlic and ginger for 2-3 minutes or until light brown and fragrant. Add the shrimp and stir-fry it for 3 minutes or until they turn pink. After, mix in the snow peas and spring onions. Cook for 5 minutes, until the snow peas turns bright green. We want it to be crunchy. Season it with salt and pepper. Transfer to a plate and serve with rice or noodles.
