Very tasty recipe. I used 1 pound of shrimp & doubled the sauce. I added sliced peppers & mushrooms to the onions & used 2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes, next time I will use more because I like spicy. I thought that doubling the sauce made a little too much but I would rather have too much than not enough, especially since the sauce was good enough to eat on its own.
Delicious and easy to make! Used half the amount of shrimp, and had just the right amount of sauce.
This is so good! I tripled the recipe (but doubled the sauce). I added some fresh ginger to this recipe. Thank you for posting this wonderful recipe.
