Shrimp Stir Fry with Snow Peas & Coconut Curry Sauce

Recipe from My Kitchen Cafe
Next time I would delete the bean sprouts...I think they brought the wrong texture.
Stir Fry Ingredients:
1 recipe Coconut-Curry sauce (below)
1 pound shrimp (peeled and deveined)
2 tsp soy sauce
2 tbsp vegetable oil
1 bell pepper (cored, seeded, and sliced)
8 ounces snow peas (strings removed)
1 cup bean sprouts (would delete)
3 garlic cloves (minced)
1 tbsp fresh ginger (grated)

Coconut Curry Sauce Ingredients:
1 can coconut milk (I used reduced fat)
1 1/2 tbsp fish sauce
1-2 teaspoons red curry paste
2 tsp light brown sugar
2 tsp cornstarch

Combine the sauce ingredients in medium bowl and set aside.

Toss the shrimp with soy sauce. Heat 2 teaspoons of oil in a 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat until shimmering. Add shrimp and cook, stirring occasionally and breaking up any clumps, until curled and lightly browned, about 1 1/2 minutes. Transfer the shrimp to a clean bowl.

Add 1 more tablespoon of oil to the pan and return to medium heat until shimmering. Add bell pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Stir in snow peas and bean sprouts and cook for one more minute.

Clear the center of the pan and add remaining 1 teaspoon oil, garlic and ginger. Cook, mashing garlic mixture into the pan with the back of a spatula, until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Whisk sauce to recombine and add to pan, bringing to a simmer. Cook until the sauce thickens, 1 to 2 minutes. Add additional cornstarch/water mixture to get desired thickness. Stir in cooked shrimp. Serve immediately.
