Shrimp Stir-Fry

When I need to fix a quick meal, I frequently turn to this well-loved dish that takes only a few minutes to cook. I've also used chicken instead of shrimp with delicious results. I enjoy preparing holiday meals for my family when everyone can be together. Senior citizen activities also keep me busy.

    We enjoyed this dish. I used a little honey instead of the brown sugar. I also served it with brown rice. Janet VFE

    I added fresh mushrooms, sugar snap peas, and sliced green onions to the vegetables. Too sweet for me, I would leave out the brown sugar next time.

    This was terrible! Followed the recipe exactly and it taste like salty orange juice. I'd give it zero stars but if you rate zero it doesn't factor into the ratings. In fact two other reviewers gave it zero but they didn't get calculated in, which is how I got duped into thinking this was a five star recipe. Just awful! Do yourself a favor and make something else with your shrimp.
