I loved everything about this recipe when I read it. I didn't like much about it when I tasted it. I just didn't think the sauce and shrimp worked well together. I would try it again but substitute chicken for the shrimp. I made the vegetable fried rice to go with it. The rice was pretty good.

I loved this recipe! Full of flavor, easy to make and super low in carbs! I will be making this again. Next time, I will be adding pea pods, broccoli and maybe lemon grass!

In Chinese or Asian cooking, we always stir fry the garlic and ginger to bring out the aroma. Then add the shrimps or any other meat. Perhaps add some chili garlic sauce would be better too.

Hmmm the dish was ok! I added broccoli, so that my husband would get full. I think I will try chicken next time and add a little more sugar. For sure dub. the sauce and scoop it over rice..

This recipe is fantastic. Quick to make gourmet fare for a week night. I make extra sauce when I am serving it over noodles. I have also added scallops, which earned rave reviews. Definitely a keeper.

Quick and easy. It seemed to us that the garlic stood out and we like garlic. Nothing special. I did not substitute anything. I did miss that it was for a buffet and had cut the recipe in half which ended up not being enough for two for dinner. I served it with rice. I wouldn't make again.
