I just had a nice pea harvest and I wanted to something that highlighted the peas. This is a perfect weekend lunch or work week dinner. Use uncooked shrimp for this recipe since they will be quick cooked in the stir fry. I found this recipe over at www.thelifejolie.com .The original recipe called for soy sauce. I used ponzu sauce instead. It has a wonderful citrus flavor to it. I was in Louisiana a couple of weeks ago. My friend’s neighbor has bees and sells Catahoula Wildflower honey. It is awesome. BTW this dish goes very nice with a dry white wine, (as seen in the photo!)
- ¼ cup Ponzu or Soy Sauce
- 1 Tbsp Corn Starch
- 3 Tbsp Honey
- 2 Tbsp Lemon Juice
- ¼ Tsp Red Pepper Flakes
- 1 large clove Garlic, peeled and pressed or minced
- 1 Tbsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil or Coconut Oil
- 1 ½ cups Snow Peas
- 1 lb raw Shrimp, deveined and peeled
Cooked Brown Rice or White Rice
In a small bowl, whisk the corn starch into the ponzu sauce until combined. Add honey, lemon juice, pepper flakes, and garlic and whisk. Set sauce aside.
Heat oil over medium high heat in a large cast iron or heavy skillet. Add snow peas and stir fry for about one minute. Stirring frequently. Add snow peas and cook until pink. Add sauce and stir to combine. Cook for about a minute until thickened. Serve over rice. Enjoy! This so good.
