Delightful! This was such a flavorful recipe - raves from the boyfriend. I didn't really end up deep frying the shrimp - I just sauteed it in the cornstarch/ginger/etc mixture to reduce fat. Delicious!

I made this the other night and it was delicious!!! Full of flavor! I didn't have the ginger or garlic paste so I used fresh and it was outstanding! I will definatley make this again when I have friends over for dinner!

Yeah, this was YUMMY! I thought the cilantro would be too much, but it was actually perfect. I even brought a bite over to my neighbor who loved it - as did my two year old twins. Thanks!
