PAM Spray Pump Olive Oil
1lbfresh snow peas or sugar snap peaswashed, drained, patted dry
Spray a wok or non stick skillet with several pumps of PAM Spray Pump Olive Oil. Heat the skillet over medium high until hot.
Add the fresh snow peas to the pan. Sprinkle with the salt, pepper and lemon zest (of whole lemon). Cook and stir quickly until the snow peas start to blister and are heated through, about 5-7 minutes. Transfer to a dish and set aside.
Sprinkle the prepared shrimp with the seasoning and stir to coat well.
Add more PAM Spray Pump Olive Oil to the pan. Working quickly, add the garlic to the pan. Stir quickly until just golden then add the shrimp.
Let the shrimp cook (untouched) for 3 minutes on one side. Flip and cook and additional 2 - 3 minutes. You want the shrimp to be pink and no longer gray in the middle.
Squeeze the juice of half the lemon directly into the pan. Slice the remaining lemon half thinly and toss the slices into the pan. Add the snow peas back to the pan and stir to combine. Pour in the broth. Reduce heat.
In a small bowl, stir together the cornstarch and water. Stir it into the pan quickly. Add more broth as needed until the sauce is a desired consistency.
Remove from heat and serve warm. Great with your favorite pasta or rice.
