  1. Whisk soy sauce, hoisin sauce, honey, chili paste, and orange marmalade together in a small bowl. Stir shrimp into the marinade; refrigerate for one hour.
  2. Bring the rice and water to a boil in a saucepan over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low, cover, and simmer until the rice is tender, and the liquid has been absorbed, 20 to 25 minutes.
  3. Heat oil in a large skillet or wok. Cook the orange pepper, red pepper, sugar snap peas, and onion in hot oil until they just begin to soften, 2 to 3 minutes. Toss the marinated shrimp, garlic, ginger, and sesame oil into the vegetables; continue to cook until shrimp is heated through, 2 to 3 minutes more.
  4. Serve over hot jasmine rice, sprinkled with sesame seeds.

The Whole family enjoyed this meal. I made a few changes. I would recommend first stir frying the shrimp and set aside. do not marinate the shrimp because mine got mushy. I pretty much used the same recipe but I didnt have chili paste so i substituted 1/8 teaspoon red pepper flakes. I added some shrooms. I stirfried veggies, then added cooked shrimp and the sauce mixture. For the sauce mixture I reduced garlic to 2 teaspoons because I thought it would be too much. I recommend reducing the ginger to 1 teaspoon because it was too gingering and made my mouth tingle. So I basically used the same recipe except reduced the garlic and ginger and substituted red pepper flakes for the chili paste. Very flavorful and will make it again.

I made this exactly except that I used a package of stoplight peppers because my store didn't have orange peppers sold seperately. I also doubled the recipe and the shrimp. I loved the flavor. My only complaints are I think I would have liked more of a variety of vegetables, mushrooms and brocolli might have been nice. I also think I would have liked the peppers julienned instead of diced. I don't know if it is because I doubled the recipe I ended up with a lot of sauce. I would have liked the sauce a little thicker. All and all, not to bad.

Good for a quick and easy dinner-nice combination of flavors.

Loved this! I made a couple changes. First, I only had raw shrimp, so instead of marinating I just sauteed the veggies first and set aside, then sauteed the shrimp with the sauce until almost cooked through and added veggies back in. Also, I just had brown rice so cooked that per usual. Great recipe- will definitely make again!

Great recipe. Loved the flavor combination. Will add more shrimp next time though. Thanks for sharing.

Wonderful! We cut back on the ginger and I have no idea what chili paste is so we just used about a teaspoon of red pepper flake for some heat. Even my 4 year olds gobbled it up!

We loved this. The flavors are bold, spicy and sweet. My husband said this was the best asian dinner I have ever made...and believe me, I have made many asian recipes off of this site. Finally, the flavors we were looking for.

Excellent! Easy to double or adjust to individual preferences. I couldn't get it out of the wok and to the table quick enough.
