Stir Fried Shrimp, Sweet Peas, Bean Sprouts and Mushroom

I’m finding it a challenge to convince my housemates to eat vegetables! They’re all grown men but they’re like kids when it comes to food. So I am trying out different recipes and maybe I’ll convert them to healthier eating… no matter how long that might take.

I have some sweet peas in the fridge so I went out to buy some shrimps, mushroom and bean sprouts to make this Asian dish. This recipe is good for 2 persons as main dish.


  • 2 tbsp cooking oil, separated
  • 300g shrimp (12 pieces)
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced
  • 150g sweet peas, trimmed
  • 125g sliced shiitake mushroom
  • 1 tbsp light soy sauce
  •  tbsp hoisin sauce
  • 2 tbsp rice wine
  • 1 tsp corn starch
  • salt and pepper to taste


  1. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large skillet over high heat. Cook shrimp for 1 minute. Transfer the shrimp to a plate (it will finish cooking later).
  2. Heat the remaining 1 tbsp oil in the pan over high heat. Cook onion for one minute. Add snow peas and mushroom and cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables are softened, about 5 to 7 minutes.
  3. While cooking the vegetables, mix the soy sauce, hoisin, rice wine and cornstarch in a small bowl.
  4. Add bean sprouts, cookedshrimp and sauce mixture to skillet. Keep stirring until the sauce is slightly thickened and the shrimp are cooked through, about 1 to 2 minutes.
  5. Serve hot with steamed rice and enjoy.
