Combine shrimp, ginger, vegetable oil, garlic, and five-spice powder in medium bowl; toss to blend. Cover and refrigerate at least 1 hour and up to 4 hours.

Heat large nonstick skillet over medium-high heat. Add shrimp mixture and saute 3 minutes. Add soy sauce; stir until shrimp are just opaque in center and liquid evaporates, about one minute. Transfer to plate and cool completely.

Wrap 1 snow pea lengthwise around each shrimp from head to tail. Secure with skewers. (Can be prepared 6 hrs ahead. Cover and refrigerate.) Serve slightly chilled or at room temp. A blend of ground anise, cloves and ginger; available in the spice section of most supermarkets.
