Ingredients
  • 3 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil, divided

  • 2 teaspoons grated fresh ginger
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 pound medium to large fresh shrimp, peeled, deveined, and chopped

In a medium bowl, combine the lime juice, 2 tablespoons oil, 1 tablespoon soy sauce, ginger, and garlic. Add the shrimp and let marinate in the refrigerator for 30 minutes.

In a medium skillet, heat the remaining oil over medium-high heat. Add the bell pepper, green onions, and water chestnuts, and cook, stirring constantly, for 3 minutes. Add the shrimp and marinade, and cook until the shrimp are pink, about 3 minutes. Stir in the remaining soy sauce.
