Shrimp Stir-Fry

My son loves shrimp, so when he had to pick a meal to make for a Boy Scouts badge, this is the recipe he selected. It has since become a family favorite. It's one of the few healthy meals the kids frequently request.


  • 1 lb. large peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 3 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. vegetable oil
  • 1 small red bell pepper, coarsely chopped
  • 1 small onion, coarsely chopped
  • 30 snow peas, trimmed
  • 2 Tbsp. water
  • pinch of pepper


Don't forget to start the rice!

Combine shrimp, soy sauce, and garlic in a medium mixing bowl. Stir with a wooden spoon until shrimp are evenly coated. Set aside.

Add vegetable oil to a wok and set over medium-high heat. When oil is hot, add the red pepper and onion. Cook, stirring constantly until pepper is slightly softened, about 3 minutes. Add the snow peas and shrimp mixture. Continue stirring until the shrimp turn pink and are cooked through and the snow peas are tender but still crisp, about 3 minutes more.

Remove pan from heat. Add remaining soy sauce, water, and pepper. Stir until blended. Immediately serve over rice.
