Servings 2 servings


  • 1 lb. jumbo shrimp
  • 1/2 red bell pepper thinly sliced
  • 1/2 yellow bell pepper thinly sliced
  • handful shredded carrots
  • 1 cup snow peas
  • 2 tbsp. sliced garlic about 3 large garlic cloves
  • 1 tbsp raw honey
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 2 tbsps. fresh chili pepper paste
  • 2 tbsps. avocado oil or oil of your preference.


  • Start by slicing up the veggies. 
  • In a wok, heat up 2 tbsps. of avocado oil on medium heat and sauté the shrimps, occasionally flipping them over to cook on both side. This take about 5 minutes. 
  • Add in the garlic, give it a little toss and sauté for another minute. Add in the honey and the chili pepper paste. Cook together for about a minute. Sprinkle some salt and then add in the veggies.
  • Stir everything together and let the veggies sauté until they are tender. Should be about 5 minute.
  • Remove and serve. You can garnish with some sliced green onions or some sesame seeds.


  • I bought shredded carrots from the grocery store but you can thinly slice regular carrots at home.
  • You can use a standard non stick pan or a traditional wok for this recipe.
  • I did not use fresh chili peppers for this recipe but I used the fresh chili pepper paste instead. You can find them at your local grocery stores. It gives a nice color and flavor to the food.
  • Slice your veggies into roughly the same size, so they all cook evenly.
  • Prep your ingredients before firing up the wok, things moves fast!
  • Keep an eye on your shrimp, they cook quick and overcooking can make them rubbery. The shrimp are done when they turn opaque and for a 'C' shape.
  • You can garnish with some sliced green onions or some sesame seeds.
