Venison Stir Fry with tender snow pea shooters and sesame seeds make a healthy dish packed with flavor. This Asian inspired stir fry came into being the minute I saw the fresh pack of snow pea shooters that arrived at my door step courtesy of Jade Asian Greens. I got a huge shipment a few days back and have been creating gorgeous green dishes all week, most of which I will be blogging over the next month. If you’ve never eaten snow pea shooters before, you have to try them. A cross between tender spinach and snow peas these incredibly nutritious tender shoots impart a unique flavor to any dish. I love cooking venison and venison stir fry is one of our favorite ways to eat venison. I added some red peppers, spring onions to the snow pea shooters and mixed in some toasted sesame seeds, fresh ginger and a delish Asian inspired venison stir fry was born. The snow pea shooters from Jade Asian Greens were fresh, crisp, clean, ready to cook and I loved using them!! Check out the picture below.
Nutrition Wise !
Venison is great source of lean protein, iron, zinc and Vitamin B. Not to mention organic and low in fat. Think about it … Deer are constantly running and they don’t store fat ! Snow pea shooters are a nutrient dense leafy vegetable. This means for very few calories, you get large amounts of vitamins and minerals. They are high in fiber, potassium and Vitamin C. Sesame seeds add a healthy dose of Vitamin E and fiber to this dish. All in all, a healthy venison stir fry !!
