Amy makes a 20-minute stir-fry with shrimp, snow peas, bell pepper and hoisin sauce.
  Light soy sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Hoisin sauce 2 Tablespoon
  Water 2 Tablespoon
  Ground ginger 1⁄2 Teaspoon
  Corn starch 2 Teaspoon
  Canola oil/Peanut oil 2 Tablespoon
  Shrimp 1 Pound, shelled and deveined (medium or large)
  Red bell pepper 1 Medium, cut into thin strips
  Snow peas 1⁄2 Pound

Whisk together the soy sauce, hoisin sauce, water, ginger, and cornstarch and set aside. Heat the oil in a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat. Add the shrimp and cook about 1 minute. Add the red bell pepper and snow peas and cook, stirring constantly, until the vegetables are crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Rewhisk the soy sauce mixture and add to the pan. Reduce the heat and simmer, stirring constantly, until mixture thickens slightly, about 2 minutes. Serve immediately.
