2 Heat a large skillet over medium heat. Add the snow peas and a couple tablespoons of water. Cook until just tender-crisp, about 3-4 minutes. Remove and wipe the pan clean with a paper towel. Remove shrimp from the marinade and reserve the marinade on the side. Add the shrimp in a single layer and cook for 2-3 minutes per side, or until the shrimp have turned light pink in color. Remove the shrimp from the pan.

3 Whisk the cornstarch into the reserved marinade and add it to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally until the sauce has thickened slightly, about 2 minutes. Add the shrimp and snow peas back to the pan. Toss with sauce. Serve over rice, cauliflower rice, or noodles with your desired garnishes.
