This turned out awesome! I used fresh carrots and frozen snap peas, and a mix of spinach and arugula that I had leftover from a salad. Next time I'm going for 3 or 4 cloves of garlic, since I love it! Thanks for sharing, I'll be making this again.
Light with Lots of flavor! I used frozen carrots and snap pea which had onions and mushrooms in the package. I added them to the shrimp so to skip steps 2 & 3. Thanks KC!
Very yummy. I did have to make two substitutions: chicken broth in place of wine and Napa cabbage in place of arugula (store was out). This is a very tasty, easy dish.
