  • 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)

Spicy Sauce

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)
  • Enjoy! :)
