    Sweet & Spicy Chicken Stir-Fry with Rice & Snow Peas
    Title
    • 10 oz Tail-On Shrimp (Peeled & Deveined)
    • ½ cup Jasmine Rice
    • 2 cloves Garlic
    • 2 Scallions
    • 4 oz Snow Peas
    • 3 Tbsps Sweet Chili Sauce
    • 2 Tbsps Mayonnaise
    • 1 Tbsp Sambal Oelek
    • ¼ cup Cornstarch
    • 1 Tbsp Sesame Oil
    • 3 Tbsps Roasted Peanuts
    • 1 Tbsp Rice Vinegar
    Cook the rice
    1 Cook the rice

    In a medium pot, combine the rice, a big pinch of salt, and 1 cup of water. Heat to boiling on high. Once boiling, reduce the heat to low. Cover and cook, without stirring, 15 to 17 minutes, or until the water has been absorbed and the rice is tender. Turn off the heat and fluff with a fork. Cover to keep warm.

    2 Prepare the ingredients & make the sauce

    Meanwhile, wash and dry the fresh produce. Peel and roughly chop 2 cloves of garlic. Thinly slice the scallions, separating the white bottoms and hollow green tops. Roughly chop the peanuts. In a large bowl, whisk together the mayonnaise, vinegar, sweet chili sauce, and as much of the sambal oelek as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. 

    Cook the snow peas
    3 Cook the snow peas

    In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat the sesame oil on medium-high until hot. Add the chopped garlic, sliced white bottoms of the scallions, and snow peas; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until slightly softened. Transfer to a bowl; cover with foil to keep warm. Wipe out the pan. 

    Coat, cook & dress the shrimp
    4 Coat, cook & dress the shrimp

    Pat the shrimp dry with paper towels; remove the tails. Place in a bowl. Season with salt and pepper. Add the cornstarch; toss to coat. In the same pan, heat a thin layer of oil on medium-high. Once the oil is hot enough that a pinch of cornstarch sizzles immediately when added, add the coated shrimp in an even layer (discarding any excess cornstarch). Cook, without stirring, 2 to 3 minutes, or until lightly browned. Continue to cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, or until browned and cooked through. Turn off the heat. To the bowl of sauce, add the cooked shrimp (discarding any excess oil from the pan); stir to coat. Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired.
