This has possibilities . . . prepared according to recipe except I used a can of mandarian oranges. Also added some Shricha chile sauce to spice up a bit per reviews that said it was bland. Next time will add some broccoli, water chestnuts or peas. Served over brown rice.

a bit bland, but easy to make and can easily be spiced up.

This was a great recipe -- the flavors were well balanced and it was very aromatic. Easy to make, too. My only complaint is that the shrimp were waaaay too salty. Next time I'm going to try cutting the salt back to 1/2 tsp. I served this with bean thread noodles instead of rice and it was delish! I'll be adding this to my regular rotation.

Wonderful! We used rice noodles instead of rice and added a couple of pinches of red pepper flakes. We also used only a couple of good pinches of kosher salt for 1/2 lb shrimp.

My husband and I both enjoyed the dish. When I make it again, I'll cut back a little on red pepper and green onion amounts and may increase the amount of sauce a bit.

After all of the wonderful reviews, have to say that we were disappointed. I thought the vinegar taste was overpowering. We missed the traditional soy sauce flavor, but that's just a matter of personal taste. On the positive side, salting the frozen shrimp really brought them back to life. They were plump and cooked up succulently, and this will be a step that I'll always use for frozen shrimp.

Made it for the first time last weekend and it turned out very bland. Would like to try it again and use more ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes, as another poster suggested, to make the flavor really come to life. Liked the freshness and healthiness of ingredients.

I made this for the first time yesterday and it was wonderful! I will definitely make it again. I stuck to the recipe except instead of using the Chinese rice wine or sherry, I used some pinot grigio I had in the fridge. Great dish!

A little bland and not much sauce. I'd like this to have a bit more flavor.

Simple & easy to make. I liked the blandness of sauce, it allowed flavors of food to come through. Added chopped celery & broccoli; at end stirred in bean sprouts. Topped with toasted slivered almonds. Will try this with chicken next, and follow the suggestion of adding water chestnuts & mandarin oranges.

I haven't made this, but thought I would add a tip: reduce the salt on the shrimp and add soy sauce and/or oyster sauce to the sauce mixture. I'm sure this change would something to the flavor the recipe currently lacks.
