Stir-fried Sugar snap peas with shrimp

Sugar snap peas are small, rounded pods, containing tiny peas. They are similar to mange tout, and the whole pod is eaten, but they are plumper. Sugar snaps have a fresh, sweet flavor and a crunchy texture. Look for bright green, crisp pods, which are full of peas but not bursting at the seams.  Sugar snap peas can be steamed or stir-fried.  Today I prefer stir-fried and please be aware do not over cook or they will lose their flavor and crunchy texture.  This dish just need 5 minutes for cooking…it’s easy and fast fresh…this recipe we call "Pad Thou Kak kap Koong" the other Thai food local style…you will love it!!!
