Shrimp & Sugar Snaps in Red Chili Sauce #Weekly Menu Plan

I can never go wrong making shrimp for my family, and there is no easier healthy meal to get on the table in 30 minutes than a stir-fry.

The favor is so pronounced in this simple recipe because of the addition of roasted red chili paste which you can buy pre-made.

All you have to do is fry up some garlic, onions, snap peas and peppers, add the paste mixture and shrimp. I have a rice cooker, so I can make that ahead of time. I also recommend pulling off the tops of the snap peas the night before, so you won't have to spend any time doing that if you are in a hurry to get dinner on the table. 

The end result is a bright, spicy and healthy meal that the whole family can enjoy.
