Reviews for Hoisin Shrimp & Broccoli
"Tried this for dinner tonight..I think it needs a lot more veggies but the flavor was good."
"I love it! It's for keeps.."
"I loved it!!!! I used ground ginger instead of fresh and I didn't use sesame oil. This dish pleasantly surprised me. It will definitely be a staple in my home."
"Excellent recipe! The only thing I changed was using ground ginger instead of fresh. The flavors are perfectly balanced so the shrimp is accentuated and not covered up, which is so often the case with stir fry sauces. This is just perfect! Definitely will be making an encore performance at my house!"
"I made this recipie even though I didn't have all the ingredients. I didn't have hoisin sauce, green onions, fresh gingerroot or garlic cloves. I used ground ginger and garlic powder instead. I looked up the equal amounts on google. Even without those ingredients this dish was fantastic. I do think the sesame oil makes all the difference. This is the best and most authentic stirfry I've ever made. Even my 15 month old liked it."
