Before starting, preheat the oven to 425°F. Wash and dry all produce. Heat Guide for Step 4 (dbl for 4 ppl): 1/8 tsp mild, 1/4 tsp medium, 1/2 tsp spicy and 1 tsp extra-spicy! Arrange bacon strips in a single layer on a parchment-lined baking sheet. Brush with sriracha. Bake bacon in the middle of the oven until crispy and cooked through, 8-12 min.** When bacon is crispy, transfer to a paper towel-lined plate and set aside.
Meanwhile, add 1 1/4 cups water and 1/8 tsp salt (dbl both for 4 ppl) to a medium pot. Cover and bring to a boil over high heat. Once boiling, add rice, then reduce heat to low. Cover and cook until rice is tender and liquid is absorbed, 12-14 min. Remove the pot from heat. Set aside, still covered.
Trim snap peas. Finely chop chili, removing seeds for less heat. (TIP: We suggest using gloves when prepping chilis!) Using a strainer, drain and rinse shrimp, then pat dry with paper towels.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium heat. When hot, add 1 tbsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then carrots, snap peas and 1/8 tsp chilis. (NOTE: Reference heat guide.) Cook, stirring often, until veggies soften slightly, 2-3 min. Season with salt and pepper. Sprinkle cornstarch over veggies. Cook, stirring constantly, until veggies are coated, 1 min.
Add sesame seeds, garlic puree, shrimp, soy sauce, sweet chili sauce, 1/2 tsp sugar and 1/4 cup water (dbl both for 4 ppl) to the pan with veggies. Cook, stirring often, until mixture thickens slightly and shrimp are cooked through, 3-4 min.** Season with salt and pepper, to taste.
Slice bacon into 1/2-inch pieces. Fluff rice with a fork, then season with salt. Divide rice between bowls. Top with shrimp stir-fry and bacon.
