  1. Heat up a wok over medium-high heat. Add first part of cooking oil to wok and then shrimp to heated oil. Saute until shrimp is pink on the outside, ~4 minutes. Remove from wok and set aside.
  2. Return wok to medium-high heat and add second part of cooking oil. Add onions to heated oil and then saute for 3 to 4 minutes, until softened.
  3. Next add in snap peas with garlic; saute for 1 minute.
  4. Add in peppers and then push all ingredients to the side, forming a donut hole in the middle. Give your stir-fry sauce a stir (to mix up any arrowroot powder that has settled to the bottom) and pour it into the hole. Wait for it to darken, bubble, and thicken (1 to 2 minutes) before adding shrimp back to the wok.
  5. Toss until all ingredients are coated in sauce. Finish with lemon juice and then season to taste with salt and pepper.
  6. Enjoy over cauliflower rice (remember to save half the cauliflower rice for tomorrow night).
