  • 1 tablespoon juice from 1 lime
  • 1 tablespoon Sriracha sauce
  • 1 teaspoon brown sugar
  • 1 tablespoon canola oil
  • 4 medium cloves garlic minced (about 4 teaspoons)
  • 1 small shallot minced (about 2 tablespoons)
  • 1 pound large shrimp shelled and deveined
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • 2 tablespoons roughly chopped cilantro
  • 1 cup wontons


  • In a small bowl, whisk together the lime juice, Sriracha, and sugar and set aside.
  • Heat the oil in a large wok over high heat until shimmering. Add the garlic and shallots and stir-fry until the garlic just begins to brown, 30 seconds to 1 minute. Add the shrimp to the wok and cook and toss just until the shrimp begins to turn pink on all sides, 1 to 2 minutes.
  • Swirl the Sriracha mixture into the wok and toss to combine. Season with salt and black pepper. Continue cooking until the shrimp are coated in the sauce and cooked through, 2 to 3 minutes longer. Transfer the shrimp to a platter, garnish with cilantro, and serve immediately.
