  • Prep Time
  • 4Servings


  • 2 tablespoons vegetable oil
  • 2 tablespoons finely chopped garlic
  • 1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
  • 1 pound large shrimp--peeled, deveined and patted dry
  • 1 zucchini, sliced crosswise 1/4 inch thick
  • 1 tablespoon capers, rinsed
  • Salt and black pepper
  • 3 tablespoons dry white wine


Heat a 14-inch, flat-bottomed wok over high heat until a bead of water vaporizes upon contact. Swirl in 1 tablespoon oil. Add the garlic and crushed red pepper and, using a metal spatula, stir-fry until fragrant, about 10 seconds. Push the mixture to the side of the wok.

Add the shrimp and spread them in a single layer. Cook undisturbed for 1 minute.

Swirl in the remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add the zucchini and stir-fry until the shrimp begin to turn pink and the zucchini is bright green, about 1 minute. Add the capers, 1/2 teaspoon salt and 1/4 teaspoon black pepper. Swirl in the wine and stir-fry until it has nearly evaporated and the shrimp are just cooked through, about 1 minute.
