Shrimp, snow peas and bell pepper: three simple ingredients that cook quickly to create sweet, crunchy, salty, tender goodness. Swap out the vegetables if you prefer. Try zucchini or boy choy.
Keep it simple but be certain not to overcook the shrimp; keep them moving until they just turn tender and pink.
This easy, one-dish meal takes about 20 minutes to make (10 to prep and another 10 to cook) so you can be out of the kitchen in no time.

Whisk together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, water, ginger, and cornstarch and set aside. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat. Add the shrimp and cook about 1 minute. Add the red bell pepper and snow peas and cook, stirring constantly, until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Rewhisk the soy sauce mixture and add to the pan. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
