"Great recipe! The only change I made was adding sliced mushrooms to the sauce, just because I felt like it. So easy and so tasty. Served over Jasmine rice and had to have seconds! Will definitely do this again!"

"I made this last evening for my hubby and I. YUM! The only change I made was that I used medium sized shrimp which presented nice chunks of meat. I served Jasmine rice, the rest of the peas, and egg rolls on the side. Beautiful dinner. Beautiful plate. Will definitely make this one again!"
