  • 1/2 pound shrimp peeled and deveined
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch preferred Argo Corn Starch
  • 2 tablespoons neutral flavored cooking oil divided (like canola, corn or vegetable oil)
  • 1/2 small onion sliced
  • 1 cup sliced bell pepper
  • 1 cup sugar snap peas
  • 1 stalk green onion chopped or thinly sliced

For the Spicy Teriyaki Sauce

  • 1 teaspoon grated fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons soy sauce
  • 2 tablespoons mirin
  • 2 tablespoons sake
  • 1 teaspoon chili garlic sauce optional
  • 1 teaspoon cornstarch preferred Argo Corn Starch


  • Pat the shrimp very dry. In a bowl, toss the shrimp with cornstarch to coat.
  • Heat a wok or large saute pan over high heat. When hot, swirl in just 1 tablespoon of the cooking oil. Add the shrimp to the pan, trying not to overlap. Let cook for 30 seconds. Flip, and cook an 30 seconds. Remove the shrimp to a clean bowl. The shrimp will be half-cooked, we will finish cooking in a later step.
  • Turn the heat to medium-high. To the same pan, swirl in the remaining cooking oil. When hot, add in the onion and bell pepper. Stir fry for 1 minute. Add in the sugar snap peas and continue to stir fry for an additional minute.
  • Add in the half-cooked shrimp and pour in the Ginger Teriyaki Sauce. Cook until the sauce comes to a simmer, thickens, and is glossy. Garnish with green onions.


Make sure to pat down your shrimp wit a paper towel or you won't get that nice caramelization.
Cut your vegetables into similar sized pieces, so they all cook at the same time. 
Have all your ingredients ready before you fire up the wok, as things move fast!
If you don't have a wok you can use a wide bottomed pan.
