    I thought this was going to be way too salty, and it's certainly not low sodium, but it is delicious!

      We had this dish at a Chinese Restaurant and fell in love with it, so I was so happy to find this. I did decrease the salt to 1 teaspoon and that was plenty. Only other change I made was to dust the shrimp with cornstarch before cooking. Next time I will add some thinly sliced green onions. Served it over fried rice for an awesome dinner! This will go into my favorite "Zaar recipes cookbook. Thank you so much for sharing.

      We fell in love with this recipe right off the bat! My family couldn't get enough! I served over some brown rice and had some sauteed veggies to go with it. Awesome!
