  • 3 Tbsp. canola oil, divided
  • 1 lb. shrimp, peeled and de-veined
  • 2 Golden Delicious apples, cored and thinly sliced
  • 1 C green onion, chopped
  • 1 sweet red pepper, seeded and cut into strips
  • 1 (6 oz.) pkg. frozen snow peas, thawed
  • 1/2 C cold water
  • 1/4 C cider vinegar
  • 1/3 C firmly packed brown sugar
  • 4 tsp. cornstarch
  • 1 Tbsp. soy sauce
  • 1 tsp. ground ginger


Place 1 Tbsp. of canola oil in to a large skillet over high heat. Heat until the oil is hot but not smoking. Add the shrimp and, stirring constantly, cook 2 minutes or until the shrimp turns pink. Place the shrimp in a bowl and set off to the side.

Place another Tbsp. of the oil into the skillet and allow to heat. Add the apple slices and, stirring continuously, cook 1 minute. Remove and place in the bowl with the shrimp.

Pour the last Tbsp. of oil into the skillet and heat again. Add the onion, pepper, and snow peas. Stirring continuously, cook for 2 minutes. Place in the bowl with the shrimp.

Combine the water and vinegar together in a bowl, being sure to stir well. Add the brown sugar, cornstarch, soy sauce, and ginger. Mix well, being sure all the ingredients are incorporated together. Pour into the heated skillet. Stirring continuously, bring the mixture to a boil. Continue cooking until the sauce thickens to your liking. Add the shrimp ingredients to the skillet once the sauce has thickened. Place the heat on low and continue cooking 6 minutes or until completely heated through. Serves 4.
