This simple dish makes a bowl full of crunchy vegetables, tender sweet shrimp and a richly flavored glossy Asian inspired sauce in just 30 minutes. Great for an easy weeknight meal, the combination of snap peas, bell peppers and shrimp are so colorful with the sauce and seasonings, you may want to make this for a larger crowd. The jalapeno adds some spice to the stir-fried vegetables and chili-garlic sauce adds another layer and more kinds of flavor. Choose your level of spice by adding more or less of those to the dish. Serve this gorgeous saute over quickly cooked cauliflower rice or hot cooked rice stick noodles.
