Reviews for Sweet 'n' Tangy Shrimp
"Made this for my dautghter and son-in-law and we all loved it. Went nicely with rice, may try adding some pineapple next time."
"This recipe is good, but it's missing something and is a bit too sweet. May try adding something to help give a little more depth of flavor and cut the sweet next time."
"Used cooked shrimp cause I couldn't find medium frozen, uncooked. Turned out great. Very tasty and the kiddo loved it!This time used uncooked shrimp...even better!"
"5 stars because this was soooo easy, fast and delicious! TRUE fast food, but so much better for you!"
"This was amazing!! I only had a 12 oz bag of shrimp, so mine was saucy & I like it that way, probably 3 servings. Definitely garnish with cilantro. A real keeper!!!"
