4 servings (serving size: 1 cup shrimp mixture and 3/4 cup rice)

Cilantro lends a pleasant grassy edge to a simple shrimp dish. Look for sambal oelek in the Asian section of supermarkets or specialty stores, or substitute hot sauce. Serve with steamed bok choy or sugar snap peas.

How to Make It

Heat a wok or large skillet over high heat; add oil to pan, swirling to coat. Add onions, ginger, and garlic to pan; stir-fry 1 minute. Add shrimp; stir-fry 2 minutes. Stir in soy sauce and chile paste; stir-fry 1 minute or until shrimp are done. Remove pan from heat; add cilantro, stirring constantly until cilantro wilts. Serve over rice.

What a punch of flavor, love this recipe. As recommended in the Cooking Light magazine I add one large bok choy to make this more of a one dish meal. Soooo good!

This was easy and quick to make. Flavors was decent, but it just wasn't memorable for me.

This was very flavorful and easy to prepare. I only used 1 tbsp of low-sodium soy sauce and 1 1/2 tsp of chili garlic sauce. I actually didn't have enough green onions, maybe only 1 cup but it still turned out great. Served with fried rice (WW recipe).

Really enjoyed this recipe! Added a bit more garlic and also added broccoli to the stir fry to get in some extra veggies...delicious!

I thought this was horrible. It was quick and easy, but I couldn't eat it. All I tasted was salt, and I used low sodium soy. I love cilantro and shrimp, but the salt overwhelmed everything. Did I mention all I tasted was salt. Husband asked if there was cilantro in it (2 Cups!!!). Just disgusting.

This was quick and easy. I substituted green curry paste for the chile paste simply because that was what I had on hand. I am a big Thai fan and love cilantro, so this was definatly a winner for me.
