Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a bowl, combine all marinade ingredients; stir in the shrimp until evenly coated; marinate for 20-25 minutes.
  2. Meanwhile, blend together all sauce ingredients.
  3. Slice the chili peppers in half lengthwise, and scrape out the seeds with the tip of a knife, then cut the peppers into 1/4-inch pieces (I use rubber gloves for this, watch your eyes, these are HOT!).
  4. In a large wok or large heavy skillet, over high heat, add in half of the marinated shrimp; stir-fry for 2 minutes, or until the shrimp turns pink; remove.
  5. Heat 1 Tbsp oil in the same wok/frypan, and stir-fry remaining shrimp in the same manner; remove.
  6. Wipe out the pan with a paper towel.
  7. Heat the remaining oil in the same pan.
  8. Add the chili peppers and garlic; stir-fry 10 seconds, or until peppers start to turn brown.
  9. Add in the green onions and bell pepper; stir-fry 1 minute.
  10. Add in the sauce mixture; cook, stirring until sauce boils and thickens.
  11. Stir in the shrimp and sesame oil.
  12. Serve immediately.
