Shrimp and Vegetable Stir Fry with Chili Mint
This is an simple recipe that includes plenty of flavor and heat due to the ample amount of mint and jalapeno peppers used while cooking it. You can even throw in some finely chopped bamboo shoots and spring onions to give it an extra crunch.

Spicy Orange Shrimp
This is a fantastic shrimp dish with orange and some Asian flavors. Oranges can have a fairly subtle flavor so the idea is to season the sauce without overpowering the flavors of the orange. Basically you want to balance the flavor of the orange with the saltiness from the soy sauce, some relish from the vinegar, a bit of sweetness from the honey and some chili heat. The end product is a dish of moist shrimp covered in a sauce with the aroma and flavor of oranges.
The secret to this shrimp dish is an Asian technique called "velveting" or "passing," in which the shrimp is immersed in hot oil for a second or two before stir-frying. This method gives the shrimp an immense texture. Garnish the dish with some fresh cilantro and serve with steamed rice.
