"Very good! I halved the red pepper for my heat sensitive young ones but think next time the full 1/2 teaspoon would be perfect - for me anyway. Also, I used uncooked shrimp so threw them in with the carrots and onions. Tasty."

"Family and I all really enjoyed the favors in this. I did use mandarin ginger dressing for the shrimp marinade, added fresh garlic to the vegetable sauté and diidn't have sesame oils so I used 2 TBSP of sesame seeds. Great blend of flavours!"
