“I got this good-for-you recipe about 10 years ago from a friend,” says Caroline Elliott of Grants Pass, Oregon. The tender shrimp and crisp-tender veggies are coated with a mild, lemony sauce that makes this dish a colorful keeper.
- 1 tablespoon cornstarch
- 1/2 teaspoon sugar
- 1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
- 1/4 teaspoon grated lemon peel
- Dash pepper
- 1/2 cup water
- 4-1/2 teaspoons lemon juice
- 1/2 pound uncooked medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
