Reviews forEasy Shrimp Stir Fry
"This is a good basic recipe, I have to agree with some of the others though. It needs a little something. Try using fresh ginger, 2 Tbs would replace the dried. I like the addition of a little sweetener, maybe a touch of honey would be good."
"Definitely easy to prepare! Added about 2 Tbsp of brown sugar and some salt. Since I didn't have broccoli or red peppers, I doubled up on the frozen stir-fry veggies. My teenage son actually ate it! Served over brown rice. Very tasty!"
"Not much flavor. Needs more of something ... Maybe red pepper flakes, more salt, soy sauce. Thought it was pretty bland."
"This recipe was very good. I served it over rice. Very filling and satisfying. My husband loved it."
