Stir-fry Sweet Snap Peas with Shrimp

I recalled years ago when I was working at East Village,NYC ,every Sunday morning I will shop at flea market near Tompkins Square Park to look for fresh food and fruits.One of the vendor's lady who sell organic vegetables and fruits offered me some fresh sweet snap peas. I have no idea that we can eat the sweet snap peas as it's but she told me,just try it and I was amazed how sweet and succulent is the sweet snap peas!! No wonder it's called sweet peas!!...Sugar snap peas are the result of crossing English peas with snow peas .I loves all peas especially the crispy and crunchy green sweet snap pea!! If you never try this peas before ,go to your local market tomorrow, get some to stir-fry for your family!! I assure you ,you will love it like I do!


1 pound sweet snap peas ( removed both end but you don't have to if it comes clean) wash and drain

1 small carrot (peel and sliced)

10 pieces tiger shrimp ( clean and deviened)

1 tbsp chicken bouillon powder

1 tbsp oyster sauce

3-4 fresh garlic (peel and chopped)

2 tbsp cooking oil


1: Prepare skillet at medium high heat with oil and chopped garlic.When garlic fragrant and lightly brown,add in ,carrot and clean shrimp,fry shrimp until curl.
2: Add in sweet snap peas ,oyster sauce and chicken bouillon powder.Quick stir for less in 1 minutes,dish out immediately.Do not over cooked the snap peas!!
3: Serve warm with rice or noodles or eat as it's.
