"The matchsticks of fresh ginger are what set this recipe apart. Please don't substitute dried ginger or the processed ginger from the produce section! I've broken this down into detailed step-by-step to simplify the cooking, even though it appears to be many steps."

Step 1

In a small bowl, whisk the chicken broth with the soy sauce, chile-garlic sauce, and cornstarch. Set aside.

Step 2

In a large nonstick skillet, heat the coconut oil until shimmering. Add the ginger matchsticks and stir-fry over moderately high heat until they are softened, about 1 minute.

Step 3

Add the snow peas and stir-fry until crisp-tender and the ginger is beginning to brown, about 2 minutes.

Step 4

Add the shrimp to the skillet and stir-fry for about 1 minute.

Step 5

Add the scallions and stir-fry for 30 seconds.

Step 6

Whisk the chile sauce then add it to the skillet and stir-fry until the shrimp are opaque throughout and the sauce is thickened, about 1 minute longer.

Step 7

Serve over steamed rice.

This was fabulous! We all really loved the flavor. Even my husband who doesn't eat the 'extras' in a meal, like the snow peas or rice, said he loved the flavor of the shrimp. It was so fast and easy to prepare, too. I'm saving this in my Best Of 2021 file for those nights when I'm short on time but want a delicious meal. Thank you!

This is a most delicious stir-fry! It took no time to complete once the rice was ready.
