Mom (witch 1-2-3 here on JAP) gave me a collection of spices from around the world. See www.thesilkroad.com for a list. The recipe is not listed on the website but is on the back of the can. This is a pretty spicy dish, so if you don't care for the bite curry sometimes brings, I would cut down on the amount.

The hardest part of this recipe is shelling and deveining the shrimp. I only use wild caught extra large shrimp (cut them in 1/2), but you can use the already cleaned ones if you prefer to skip this step.

The snap peas really MAKE this dish...that sweet bite of crunch is perfect.
