This is excellent even without the shrimp (which we grilled as kabobs separately, then tossed together with the vegetables and sauce before serving). This asian vegetable sauce is AMAZING! If you don't give this stuff a try, you're really missing out. You can use it with whatever vegetables you prefer. I used broccoli, red & green bell pepper, onion, sugar snaps, bean sprouts and bamboo shoots in this version. This dish originated from the sauce for Chinese Green Beans - Chinese Green Beans, and I ran with it from there. ENJOY!
