Great dish. Great flavors. I didn't leave it in the fridge for the whole 45 minutes since we were all hungry and couldn't wait that long :) But the flavor of the shrimp was still good. Made for zwt5

Love the flavours. I have one suggestion. Shorten the marinating time to about 15 minutes. Over the longer period, the lime in the marinade sort of 'cooked' the shrimp, so that it toughened up quickly during the stir-frying. Not bad, but too chewy. Made for Zaar World Tour.
