Stir-fry Snow Peas with Dried Shrimps
Snow Peas with Dried Shrimps Recipe
Once the snow peas are added to the wok, stir-fry quickly so that they are vibrant and crisp after cooking. For variations, you can add a protein such as prawns (shrimps), chicken, pork or tofu for added sumptuousness.
- Prepare dried shrimps by placing them in a small bowl. Add hot boiling water to cover the dried shrimps. Soak until softened. Take out the dried shrimps and pat dry on paper towels. Reserve dried shrimp soaking liquid.
- Prepare snow peas by pulling & discarding the “strings” at the sides, then trimming the ends.
- Cook the dish. Heat oil in a wokpan. Add dried shrimps and stir fry until aromatic. Add garlic and stir fry briskly until fragrant. Add prepared snow peas, dried shrimp soaking liquid and light soy sauce. Stir-fry on high heat until the snow peas are just cooked, about 1 minute. Add sesame oil and drizzle Chinese wine along sides of the wall, during the last 10 seconds of cooking.
