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!

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.

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 :)

Absolutely fabulous - give it a try. If you don't like shrimp - try chicken. Both ways it is delicious.
