"It was simple to prepare and made enough for taking to work the next day. I did use fresh snap peas and precooked for a few minutes before adding to shrimp.. This recipe is definitely a "keeper"."

"This was so good! I couldn't find frozen Sugar Snap Peas so I used fresh. I cut them in half which made it easier to eat. Will definitely make this again!!"
