  8. Add remaining 1 1/2 tsp coconut oil, shallot and garlic to skillet.
  9. Sauté over medium until aromatic, about 30 seconds. Add snap peas and bell pepper. 
  10. Season with a dash of salt and pepper.
  11. Cook, stirring constantly until hot for 1 minute.
  12. Splash in remaining coconut water while cooking the vegetables until crisp-tender.
