Total TimePrep/Total Time: 25 min.
I'm curious as to how this recipe became an "award winner," as it's certainly not an original recipe! This recipe was published in print ads for Karo Corn Syrup *decades* ago. My mother began making it when I was an adolescent; so the recipe is roughly 50 years old. That being said, once you do the prep work, the actual cooking of the dish only takes about 5 minutes. It's absolutely delicious! I've been making this once every couple of months for the past 40 years. For those who claim the recipe doesn't make enough for 4 people, bear in mind this is an Asian inspired dish. Asian meals typically feature several "main dishes," with each diner serving themselves a small portion of each. In that context, this recipe makes the correct amount for 4 people. If this is to be the only main dish served, I recommend increasing the amount of each ingredient by 50%.
Made this the other night for dinner...I don't see how this recipe could feed 4 people..not enough veggies. Three of us...with small appetites...finished the whole dish..it tastes okay but nothing special. If I make it again... I will add lots more vegetables.
I made this last night and it was delicious. I doubled the cornstarch mixture because I added squash, snow peas, and broccoli, plus the green pepper and tomato. Very healthy and light meal. Will definitely make this again.
We loved this recipe. I added the onion as was suggested and a few crushed red pepper flakes. Would recommend it!
Have made many times. Excellent dish.
I omitted the tomatoes and just added red pepper and green pepper with the shrimp. It was delicious. It tasted like sweet and sour shrimp. Will definetely eat again. I was impressed and suprised at how simple this was to make.
I added some spice, but very good recipe.
It is a delicious recipe. I added sliced zucchini and yellow squash with the green pepper. I'll definitely make it again.
I've made this several times and it's wonderful. I add chopped onion and use grape tomatoes instead of the wedges. Yum.
My boyfriend and I just finished eating this recipe for the first time and it was delicious! My boyfriend doesn't have a taste for tomatoes so I used snow peas instead. Next time I make this I will probably cook the shrimp a couple minutes longer, add more spice to make it spicy, and add more green pepper. These new additions are aiding to a picky eater but from my perspective I wouldn't change a thing! The fact that this recipe is healthy makes it even better :)
