Last night recipe was something new for us. I have an extensive collection of cookbooks and yesterday I just wanted to follow a recipe. Shrimps was the request of the day for dinner, and I happen to have some already at the house.
Stir fry is not something that we do often, eating sweet snow peas, that was a first.
We choose a recipe from Food and Wine that required Chinese chili-garlic sauce. Unfortunately I had none on hand and I was not going to purchase a huge jar, the only size available at the store, and let it expire in the refrigerator. Also my son is not too fond of hot spicy food therefore I replaced it with smashed garlic with salt.
A simple bowl of steamed rice was just perfect.
The recipe also mentioned to use a non stick pan, however I do not own one and the result was the same as described on the book. Just had to pay a little closer attention to it, but the recipe cooks so fast that I had no choice but stay on it.
