This was a great recipe awesome flavor and not very heavy.the fumes that fills your kitchen sends your nose to food heaven! As a twist I threw in some angel hair pasta and broccoli to make it my own.

Loved it! Kids gobbled it down. I didn't have the stir fry sauce and no lettuce.

I had company coming for dinner, a bag of frozen shrimp and lots of cilantro in the garden. I made this recipe as is, except for the stir-fry sauce, and it was fantastic. Everyone loved it. I am going to try this with chicken next!
