Total Time:
30 mins


  • 1/2 cup chicken stock or low-sodium broth

  • 2 tablespoons low-sodium soy sauce

  • 1 teaspoon Chinese chile-garlic sauce

  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil

  • 1/4 cup fresh ginger, cut into fine matchsticks

  • 1/2 pound snow peas

  • 1 pound medium shrimp, shelled and deveined

  • 4 small scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal

  • Steamed rice, for serving


  1. In a small bowl, whisk the chicken stock with the soy sauce, Chinese chile-garlic sauce and cornstarch.

  2. In a large nonstick skillet, heat the vegetable oil until shimmering. Add the ginger matchsticks and stir-fry over moderately high heat until they are softened, about 1 minute. Add the snow peas and stir-fry until crisp-tender and the ginger is beginning to brown, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp to the skillet and stir-fry for about 1 minute. Add the scallions and stir-fry for 30 seconds. Whisk the chile sauce, add it to the skillet and stir-fry until the shrimp are opaque throughout and the sauce is thickened, about 1 minute longer. Serve with steamed rice.
