Shrimp and Snow Peas Stir Fry

This is a great, quick and easy stir fry. It is great with rice and while the rice cooked, the stir fry can be put together. You can vary this by adding whatever vegetables you have - we think most vegetables will work for this. Another thing that may have been fun to add is some water chestnuts - this would have added a satisfying crunch to the plate.
