Reviews for Ginger Shrimp Stir-Fry
"I've made this recipe several times and it's always delicious. The ginger sauce tastes first class. I usually double it. The "ketchup" might not sound first class but you will be positively surprised! I serve it with stir-fry veggies instead of rice to cut down on carbs. It's a great alternative to shrimp and cocktail sauce and it's good hot or cold."
"This was great. I made it last week and doubled the recipe for 4 servings and added snap peas. Would certainly make this again."
"Very easy to make. I followed the directions exactly. Had a wonderful ginger smell and taste."
"This is great, quick and easy (faster if not using RAW shrimp). I modified it by using chunky salsa instead of ketchup, chopped ginger from a jar, eliminated the sugar, olive oil instead of canola oil. I served it over wild brown rice. Definitely a keeper."
"This dish was excellent! I used chicken instead of shrimp. I also threw in squash and zuchini. Agree to double the ingredients for the sauce, but even so, it was very good. The kids loved it!"
