2 Tbsp finely grated gingerroot

Directions:
Place shrimp, ginger, onions, salt and pepper in a bowl. Mix and set aside. In a pot, bring 4 cups of salted water to a boil. Boil snow peas until tender-crisp, 2 to 3 minutes. Drain and keep warm in the pot on the counter. In another pot, prepare couscous according to directions, using chicken broth instead of water. Meanwhile, in a skillet or wok, stir-fry the shrimp and onion mixture in a small amount of vegetable oil, about 2 minutes. Mix corn starch into cool chicken stock and add to the stir-fry. Cook until slightly thickened, about 1 to 2 minutes. Place 2/3 cup of couscous on the center of a plate. Arrange snow peas over couscous, and pour the stir-fry mixture over the snow peas. Sprinkle with sesame seeds and serve. A quick, light, mildly exotic dish.
