This Mother’s Day do something different with Mom!

How about cooking with a Wok?

I love cooking veggies in a Wok but how about something even better for Mother’s Day? I received the recipe for the New Pacific Chili Shrimp at Panda Express so I was quite excited about trying this recipe out for myself and even more excited about sharing it with you! The recipe is easy to follow and it’s great with fried rice!

Pacific Chili Shrimp Recipe (Homemade Version)Serves 4



1 lb         Peeled and deveined shrimp (Any shrimp species will be fine)

¼ tsp      Sea salt

½ tsp      Rice wine or water

1 pinch   White pepper

1 oz        Cooking oil

3 oz        Cooking oil

2 oz        Red bell pepper diced into 1” pieces

2 oz        Yellow onion sliced into ¼” pieces

4 oz        Sugar snap peas (or any peas in pods)

½ tsp      Crushed red chili flakes

½ tsp      Minced garlic

1 tsp       Minced fresh ginger

2 oz        Rice wine vinegar

2 tbs       Sugar

2 tbs       Soy sauce

1 tbs       Water

½ tsp      Sesame oil

1 tbs       Water mixed with 1 tbs corn starch (sauce thickener)



  1. Combine defrosted shrimp with salt, pepper, rice wine and oil. Marinate for at least 15 minutes.
  2. Combine chili flakes, ginger and garlic in a small container. Combine soy sauce, water, vinegar and sugar in a separate container.
  3. Heat a nonstick 10” (or larger) pan with high heat until white smoke appears on top. Add 3 oz cooking oil followed by the marinated shrimp. Quickly stir the shrimp in high heat until it is cooked through (roughly 1 minute).
  4. Remove only the shrimp from the pan and leave the leftover oil. Continue to cook the prepared fresh vegetables.
  5. Add cooked shrimp back into the pan along with crushed chili mixture. Cook for 30 seconds.
  6. Add sauce mixture into the pan, allowing it to come to boil, and quickly stir in the sauce thickener.
  7. Top with sesame oil and serve immediately.
  8. Enjoy!
