This is a wonderful, light stir-fry, perfect for low-carb diets. For those who aren't restricting carbs, this is wonderful atop brown rice or Asian rice noodles (and its still low-fat!!). You can alter the veggies according to taste, or what you have on hand.

Considering I didn't have all the ingredients this came out pretty good. Normally my husband doesn't like anything with a soy sauce base but he was pretty satisfied. I used whatever veggies I had plus I used red wine vinegar since I didn't have any white wine. I also added some chipotle chili flakes to add a little bit of kick (we like our food spicy). Sauce is simple and the corn starch gives it that thickness that I never had in my stir fry before. Will use again.
Yummy ingredients! We really liked this stir-fry. Once the items are prepped (I recommend peeling & deveining shrimp and chopping veggies earlier in the day), it comes together quickly. The only note I made for next time was to cut the amount of veggies AND sauce in half. The sauce was a tad bit overwhelming for the shrimp, for us. I still think it would feed four easily. Thanks for the great recipe! :-) *Made for My 3 Chefs 2007*
