sweet & spicy yuzu shrimp

sweet & spicy yuzu shrimp

1 lb peeled, raw shrimp
2-3 cups snow peas
2 cups water chestnuts
oil for stir frying (i used canola with a spash of sesame oil)

for sauce:
1/2 c yuzu spread
2 tbs brown sugar
2 tbs dijon mustard
1 squirt of huy fong chili sauce

for garnish:
grapefruit zest

heat oil and add stir fry ingredients. mix sauce and add to stir fry. cook until shrimp is pink and sauce boils. serve over brown rice and garnish with grapefruit zest

this recipe turned out about the way i expected it would. i was pleased that the sauce didn't over power the taste of the stir fry ingredients and liked the combination of the citrus and heat. if i made it again i'd add some cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it up a bit. the yuzu spread i used for this recipe almost didn't make it to tonight. it was so good i've been snacking on it all week.
