Fresh ginger, orange zest and honey, give this recipe fantastic sweet-heat. To easily peel ginger root, scrape off the skin with the back of a metal spoon.



  • Coat a large nonstick wok or saute pan with cooking spray; heat to smoking over high heat, about 2 minutes.
  • Toss in scallions, ginger, orange zest and garlic. Stir and toss constantly over the heat for 30 seconds.
  • Add snow peas. Continue tossing until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes.
  • Add shrimp; continue cooking, tossing all the while, until shrimp are pink and firm, about 2 minutes.
  • Add sprouts, orange juice, soy sauce and honey. Toss until bubbling, about 1 minute.
  • Meanwhile, combine cornstarch with rice vinegar in a small bowl.
  • Stir in cornstarch mixture; continue cooking until sauce has thickened a bit, about 30 seconds. Remove wok or pan from heat and drizzle oil over the dish. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.


  • Skip some of the prep work by buying convenience products like jarred pre-minced garlic and pre-minced ginger in your grocery store’s produce aisle.
