  • 1 fresh jalapeno pepper, seeded and minced
  • 1 pound fresh shrimp (8 to 12 ounces net after peeling and deveining)

  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 1 cup thawed frozen petite peas

In a mixing bowl combine the sesame oil, lime juice, garlic, ginger and minced jalapeno and marinate the shrimp in the mixture for 30 minutes.

While this is marinating bring 1 quart of salted water to a boil for the pasta and peel and devein the shrimp, leaving the little tail on.

When the pasta is about 5 minutes shy of being cooked, drain the shrimp, reserving the marinating juices and pat dry.

Heat 2 tablespoons of vegetable oil in a skillet. Saute the shrimp for 2 minutes or until done. Add the peas and reserved marinating juices and bring the liquid to a boil. Adjust the seasoning. Drain the pasta, divide it into two serving bowls and top each portion with shrimp. Garnish with cilantro.
