Coat a large nonstick wok or saute pan with cooking spray; heat to smoking over high heat, about 2 minutes. Toss in scallions, ginger, orange zest and garlic. Stir and toss constantly over the heat for 30 seconds. Add snow peas. Continue tossing until crisp-tender, about 2 minutes. Add shrimp; continue cooking, tossing all the while, until shrimp are pink and firm, about 2 minutes. Add sprouts, orange juice, soy sauce and honey. Toss until bubbling, about 1 minute. Meanwhile, combine cornstarch with rice vinegar in a small bowl. Stir in cornstarch mixture; continue cooking until sauce has thickened a bit, about 30 seconds. Remove wok or pan from heat and drizzle oil over the dish. Yields about 1 1/2 cups per serving.
