I loved this recipe! I added (parboiled) carrots and quartered zucchini and I added a tsp of soy sauce to the shrimp mixture. Great flavour and I didn't have to heat up the kitchen which was an added bonus. I served over rice noodles, and it was a hit! Thx gailanng, I will def make this again!

Excellent recipe! I added some sliced carrots and more ginger than the recipe called for, I like ginger. I also deep fried some vegetable pot stickers to go with the meal for Valentines and my entire family just loved it!! Thank you!

What a great summer stir fry! I used a little more garlic and soy sauce as I also added some thin rice noodles to make a one dish meal. Perfect thank you GailAnn, posted for ZWT6 Ya Ya's
