2 oz snow peas

Add reserved cauliflower, broccoli, bok choy, cabbage, and mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes or until the vegetables are heated through but still crunch. Add reserved snow peas and baby corn. Cook for another 2 minutes.
Add shrimps and cook for another 2 minutes until the shrimps turn ping and springy. Add 1 tbsp lime juice, stir and, turn off heat. Transfer to a soup bowl, top with fresh coriander leaves and serve immediately.
