Here's a nice twsit on stir-frying. The honey adds a wonderful dimension to the taste of this dish -- slightly sweet and full of flavor. I especially love the recipe because in incorporates my favorite food: shrimp!

Ingredients: For the sauce:

1/2 cup (125ml) honey
1/3 cup (75ml) soy sauce
1 1/2 Tbsp. (22ml) cider vinegar
1 Tbsp. (15ml) cornstarch
1 Tbsp. (15ml) orange rind, grated

For the stir-fry:

1 Tbsp. (15ml) vegetable oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 tsp.(10ml)fresh gingerroot, grated
1 sweet red pepper, seeded and diced
1 cup (250ml) snow peas
1 to 1 1/2 pounds (500 to 750 g) large shrimp, peeled and deveined
3 green onions, chopped
Cooked rice or noodles


In a bowl, combine all the sauce ingredients. Mix until smooth. Set aside.
Heat oil in wok or large fry pan over medium-high heat. Add the garlic and ginger. Saute for 1 minute.
Add the diced pepper and snow peas. Stir-fry for 1 minute or until tender-crisp. Add the shrimp; stir-fry just until shrimp turns pink (about 1 minute). Add the sauce. Cook, stirring constantly, until the mixture comes to a boil and thickens. Stir in the green onions.

Serve over cooked rice or noodles. ----------------------------------------------
