MY REVIEW
Reviewed May. 19, 2014

Crunchy and fresh but I thought there was way too much lemon juice - one Tbsp would do. Also, the sauce was rather thick so I added more chicken broth and a little lite soy sauce for more flavor. The ingredients were good for stir fry but the recipe needed some adjustments for our family.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Jun. 6, 2013

Beautiful presentation and wonderful crispy flavor! I added some chopped chicken chunks as well as the shrimp to add to the heartiness. Followed the rest of the recipe loosely as far as quantity of ingredients, but it turned out with a very light and flavorful sauce that blended the flavors deliciously. My family devoured it!
