Reviews for Shrimp & Shiitake Stir-Fry with Crispy Noodles
"Great flavors. I did use the cashews instead of crispy rice noodles. I agree with other reviewers that this took way too long to make. Prep was closer to an hour for me, so I doubt I'll be making it again."
"It takes a long time to make this."
"Could not find Bok Choy at our grocers the day I prepared this dish, so substituted celery and spinach. Delicious!! Its definitely a keeper!! Also added some water chestnuts and snowpeas for extra vegetables."
"wasn't a huge fan of the shitake mushrooms next time I will probably it with regular mushrooms"
"Fast, easy, deliscious!"
