Coat a deep skillet generously with cooking spray. Heat it over medium-high heat until a bead of water dances when dropped into the skillet. Add onion and both types of pepper; stir-fry until crisp-tender. Add mushrooms and garlic; stir-fry for an additional 2 minutes. Add next five ingredients (vinegar through peas) and reduce heat to medium. Cover and cook for 5 minutes.

In a small glass, combine cornstarch and wine. Mix until thoroughly combined. Slowly add to skillet and stir constantly until liquid thickens. Add shrimp and simmer until heated through. Serve immediately.
