This was soo good! We had it with a vegetable side dish for dinner and LOVED it! Plus I love dishes that are quickly made - so this one is perfect. Thanks for sharing!<br/>Made for CQ 2014
Made for the Culinary Quest 2014 - Altho you described this aptly as a 1-dish-meal, I took a different view as I awoke today. I scaled this easy-fix recipe down to 1 serving & enjoyed it for breakfast w/my juice & coffee. I used Icelandic baby shrimp vs a larger size. Man, it was so good & I felt so decadent starting my day w/your recipe. Having had my guilty pleasure alone, I expect I will share it w/Siggi & his brother for our weekly Sat brunch after their walk. Boy will they be impressed! Thx for sharing this recipe w/us. :-)
I enjoyed this lovely dish for dinner tonight, along with some naan bread and banana slices. A very tasty and satisfying meal indeed. The flavored scrambled eggs were incredible. Love the subtleness of the sesame oil and the soya sauce, they add a nice layer of flavor to the dish. The shrimp were perfect, flavorful, tender and juicy and paired beautifully with the eggs. Thank you for sharing this recipe which I will enjoy often. Made for Culinary Quest 2014 - China - Suitcase Gourmets.
