Stir-Fried Shrimp with Snow Peas and Red Bell Pepper in Hot and Sour Sauce
If meat and shrimp behave vastly differently when cooked, why are most shrimp stir-fries just a surf-for-turf protein swap?
Why This Recipe Works
We started our stir-fried shrimp recipe by trading our wok for a large, shallow nonstick skillet and marinating the shrimp for better flavor and texture. After searing the vegetables, we sautéed the aromatics, and finally stir-fried the shrimp before mixing in the sauce. For an assertive sauce, we whipped up an intense garlic mixture and reduced it to a consistency that tightly adhered to the stir-fried shrimp.
