Spring Sesame Shrimp and Sugar Snap Pea Stir-Fry

Spring has arrived and the thing we look forward to all year is stir-frying crisp sugar snap peas with shrimp. It’s a seasonal dish we devour in seconds because it’s simple to make on our KitchenAid® 30” 5-Burner Gas Cooktop.

The Gas Cooktop has great power for stir-frying and quick searing of veggies to keep them crisp, tender and delicious. In fact, stir-frys are made all year long in our kitchens because they’re an easy and satisfying way to make a quick dinner for a busy weekday or for team lunches at the studio.

Stir-frying is an easy technique, but at the same time, it’s an art that requires the proper tools in order to take the dish from just ok to really, really good.

The powerful Gas Cooktop makes cooking on high heat a breeze for a perfect and quick stir-fry. It also has an excellent Professional Dual Ring Burner in the center that has an ideal inner flame function for the low heat cooking required of perfect braises, sauces and anytime you need precise simmering.

Need low consistent heat to make a brown butter to braise your toughest meats? You can use the inner low heat burner ring of the Dual Ring Burner to get the job done. Need high intense heat cooking for times when you’re needing power to sear meats and veggies? Use the both burner rings on the Dual Ring Burner to cook your heart out. This Gas Cooktop can handle all your cooking needs.

The function of the dual ring middle burner allows for quick transitions from low to high. When you need a quick sear, the power of both burner rings will give you the hot temperature quickly, while the inner flame ring will easily provide a low simmer to finish cooking at lower temperatures for longer periods.

That’s why this stir-fry is so perfectly crisp with each bite of the sugar snap peas. The shrimp isn’t overcooked, leaving you with a meal made from high heat without using a wok or the complicated wok-ring. Use the gorgeous KitchenAid® Tri-Ply Copper 10-Piece Cookware Set instead! The combination of the sleek Copper Cookware with the power of the Gas Cooktop results in a modern twist to the classic stir-fry method.

Another great feature is the CookShield Finish. It keeps the Gas Cooktop looking clean and brand new between all the busy and multifunctional types of cooking you’ll use it for in your kitchen. All the spills and stains that occur during high temperature cooking don’t show. Which is perfect because when we’re shooting at the studio with this Gas Cooktop, the shots are still gorgeous without any messy stains splatters.
