Stir-fry Snow Pea with Shrimp

One of my favourite vegetables or pea is Snow Pea. Snow Pea is avaliable all year round .Snow pea often used in Asian stir-fries – are not to be confused with snap peas.Both are part of the legume family of sugar peas and have edible pods. Snow peas are flat with tiny seeds that are barely visible through the pods. Sugar snap pods are plump, with visible peas. I like to stir-fry snow pea shrimp in oyster sauce .It's really taste good!!


Ingredients:


1/2 lb snow pea ( wash, cut tip and pull string on side)

1 carrot (peel and sliced)

10 pc large shrimp (clean and deviened)

1 tbsp oyster sauce

3 cloves fresh garlic (peel and chopped)

1 tbsp oil







Method:


1: Cut the tip of each snow pea and pull out the tough string that runs along its side ,then wash and drain ,set aside.



2:Heat skillet or wok at high heat with oil,add in chopped garlic then clean shrimp.Stir-fry shrimp for 30 second or until curl,then toss in,carrot ,snow pea and oyster sauce.



3: Toss and quick stir the snow pea with shrimp.When it's changed color to deep green,check seasoning,dish out immediately.


4:Serve warm with rice.


Note:
Do not over cooked snow peas,coz it's tend to lose the crunchiness and become soggy.Toss at high heat not more than 2 minutes.
