4 to 6 servings

  • 1 1/2 pounds large shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 tablespoon cornstarch
  • 5 blood oranges
  • 3 tablespoons rice vinegar
  • 3 tablespoons honey
  • 3 tablespoons ketchup
  • 1 teaspoon toasted sesame oil
  • 8 ounces snow peas, trimmed
  • 3 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1/3 cup dried chiles de arbol (about 24) or other small dried chiles
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 1 tablespoon minced peeled ginger
  • 4 scallions, cut into 1- to 2-inch pieces
  • 1 tablespoon sesame seeds
  • Cooked white rice, for serving
  • Season the shrimp with 1/2 teaspoon salt in a large bowl. Add the cornstarch and toss to coat; set aside. Juice 3 blood oranges into a small bowl; add the vinegar, honey, ketchup, sesame oil and 1/2 teaspoon salt and whisk to combine. Quarter the remaining 2 oranges and thinly slice; set aside.

  • Fill a large bowl with ice water and set aside. Bring a medium pot of salted water to a boil. Add the snow peas and cook until crisp-tender, about 1 minute. Drain and immediately transfer to the ice bath; let sit until cool, then drain and pat dry.

  • Heat a large nonstick skillet or wok over high heat; add 2 tablespoons vegetable oil. Add the shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly browned and opaque, 1 to 2 minutes. Transfer to a plate with a slotted spoon.

  • Add the remaining 1 tablespoon vegetable oil and the chiles to the skillet. Cook, stirring occasionally, until lightly toasted, about 1 minute. Add the garlic and ginger. Cook, stirring, until golden, about 30 seconds. Add the blood orange juice mixture and bring to a simmer. Cook, stirring, until slightly thickened, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Return the shrimp to the skillet and stir until warmed through, about 1 minute. Add the snow peas, scallions and blood orange slices; toss to combine. Sprinkle with the sesame seeds and serve with rice.
