Reviews for Vegetable Shrimp Stir-Fry
"This was very good, l used some different vegetables and added extra water to the sauce."
"I would definitely make this recipe again, just not when my third son is home, as he is deathly allergic to seafood. The rest of us love this recipe and will be making it as often as we can."
