I was craving chinese food so this worked well- I just made a few changes. I sauteed the onions in the olive oil and added about a cup of frozen mxed veggies. Sauteed that and added my white rice and about 3 tablespoons of soy sauce (more or less). Once that got a nice color I added the shrimp, tossed it all together and it was very good. This is a good starter recipe- add your own flair.

To much soy sauce I only used 1/4 and it was still a little bit to salty but other than that it was easy n fast.

I used the advice of previous users...and took it easy on the soy sauce. Also remember when cooking with butter, there is salt added, I omitted the butter as well and used olive oil. Great recipe, I'm satisfied!
