Preparation 5 min
Cooking 15 min

160 calories per serving 


1 1/2 tbsp olive oil   23 mL
14 shrimp, medium-large   140 g
1 pinch salt [optional]   0.1 g
  ground pepper to taste    
1 shallots, finely chopped   40 g
1 cup snow peas   100 g
1 1/2 tbsp lemon juice, freshly squeezed   1/2 lemon

Before you start

Keep the serving plates in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.


  1. Heat half of the oil in a pan over medium-high heat. Add the shrimp then sauté, with stirring until the shrimp are opaque throughout and pink-coloured, 3-4 min. Season with salt and pepper, then take the shrimp out of the pan, and set them aside, covered to keep them warm.
  2. Lower the heat to 'medium', add the remaining oil, then sauté the shallot, until softened, 2-3 min, with stirring. Add the snow peas and sauté until golden and crisp-tender, 4-5 min. Season with salt and pepper. Put the shrimp back into the pan, sprinkle with the lemon juice and stir. Heat throughout (1-2 min).
  3. Serve.
