Shrimp with Green Peas

Shrimp with Green Peas
Shrimp with Green Peas, I love the blend of colors of this dish. This is not only visually appealing it is yummy as well. It’s another quick and easy dish, I used fresh pre-cooked and shelled shrimp for this recipe. To make the dish different I added turmeric and paprika. I also add some snow peas for additional vegetables. If fresh shrimps are not available frozen shrimps is a good alternative. Here is the recipe.

Shrimp with Green Peas with Turmeric


1/4 kilo pre-cooked and shelled shrimp
1 small size red or green bell pepper, diced
1/2 cup pre-cooked green peas
1 cup snow peas, trimmed
1-2 pcs. red chili, sliced
1/4-1/2 tsp. turmeric powder
1/4-1/2 tsp. paprika powder
1/4 cup cornstarch
1/4 head garlic chopped
1 tsp. grated ginger
salt and pepper
cooking oil

  3. @hungrynez,
    I bought the shrimp pre-cooked and peeled already, so it was a quick one, I wanted the sauce to have some color and I though I used turmeric and paprika. Thanks for the visit.

    I used 1/4 kilo of shrimp, at about A$9 plus yon ibang ingredients about A$15 dinsiguro:)

  4. This is another recipe that I will try. Thanks so much for putting up this website! It really helps me manage my household and adds a bit of zest in our overseas life here in Canada. Before puro na lang adobo, kaldereta, roast chicken at puro simple meals na lang ang niluluto ko. Ngayon may variety na!
