Asian Chilli Garlic Prawns with Snow Peas
A quick and easy 15-minute spicy garlic shrimp recipe made with shrimp, garlic, snow peas, and a sweet and spicy sauce. Perfect for a lazy evening.
Servings: 2 Servings
- 20 shrimp (fresh or frozen - Thaw in warm water if it is frozen.)
- 1 lb snow peas
- 4-6 cloves garlic (finely minced)
- 1 tablespoon butter
- 1 tablespoon oil (any oil, except olive oil)
Corn Starch Slurry (Sauce Thickener)
If you are using frozen shrimp, soak them in cold water for 15-20 minutes until it has thawed. I personally like to keep the skin on my shrimp, but you can peel it once the shrimp has thawed. Set aside the shrimp once they are thawed.
Wash the snow peas and cut of the tips that have a stem on it (if it isn't already removed for you). Set aside the snow peas once you are done.
Making the Spicy Sauce
Mix the corn starch with the cold water and set aside
Mix in the hoisin, chilli flakes, oyster sauce, and sriracha together in a small bowl until everything is combined. Then pour in the corn starch slurry from the step above into the sauce and mix everything together. Set aside
Putting it Together
Set the stove to medium heat. Add a bit of oil into a frying pan and wait for it to get hot.
Once the oil is hot and shimmering, add in the butter and garlic and toast it for a half a minute
Add in the shrimp and cook it until it is pink (approximately 5 minutes)
Add in the snow peas and cook it for 1 minute until it is vibrant green. Careful not to overcook it - we want it crisp!
Add in the sauce and mix it around until it thickens (approximately 1-2 minutes)
