This was one of the wonderful dishes that was served at a recent dinner party that I was invited to. The prawns were size 18-20, shelled and tails removed. You may use fresh or frozen. The Oyster sauce is the secret to the delecate flavor.. Be sure that you do not over cook the snow peas they need to have snap and crunch.

This was good but could have used some more flavor. Next time I will marinate the shrimp longer. I had to use more cornstarch to thicken the sauce at the end. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!
Bergy, I never go wrong when I pick your recipes! This was absolutly fantastic! I did use an extra garlic clove but followed the rest of the recipe to the letter. Oh, I did let the shrimp marinate overnight. Definite keeper here! Thanks Bergy
