    Kittencalskitchen's Note:

    Plan ahead the shrimp needs to marinade for 2 hours, you might also want to give this a try using chicken strips ;-) This complete recipe may be doubled, prep time includes marinating time, cooking time is only estimated, adjust the cayenne pepper to suit heat level.

      I finally found a stir fry that the kids will eat! LOL! They will eat broccoli and carrots and love shrimp. I didn't have enough sesame oil to use for the sauteing, so I made up the difference with olive oil. I think using 2 T would have been too much anyways. Left out the cayenne and it still had a kick, but mild enough for us. I think I will double the veggies next time bcz there seemed to be plenty of sauce. Served with sushi rice. Thanks so much, Kitten! I'm thrilled to find a stir fry that EVERYONE will eat!
