This receipe was very good and very easy to make. I think there is an error in the ingredients. In the directions it says "stir fry shrimp in 1 teaspoon of peanut oil". I think the 3 tsps. of seasame oil should have been peanut oil. But since I didn't have peanut oil, I used olive oil and I didn't use the gingerroot. It was quick to make which I love. I would double or even triple the sauce, since it is so good and the pasta seemed to soak it up.
