Top Review by IngridH

Oh, yum! This recipe is a real gem. I only made minor changes- I started with raw shrimp, and added them with the bok choy, I also added salt with the peppers and pea pods, but just a little and I always season my veggies when they go in the pan. I chose hoisin and sesame oil instead of the cooking oil and stir fry sauce- I really think the hoisin was key to making this such a treat. I also chose to add the optional pepper flakes, which I put in at the very beginning while the oil was heating, in order to carry the flavor to everything the oil touched. This had the best qualities of a weeknight meal- fast, easy, and tasty! Thanks for posting a winner!
