READY IN: 50mins
Recipe by Hey Jude

This is delicious and easy enough for me to do after work when I get a craving for it. Be sure to serve with plenty of steamed rice to soak up the sauce. Recipe from Sam Choy's Sampler.

This was delicious, I had some cooked shrimp in the freezer, so I made the sauce and threw the shrimp in for the last 5 mins cooking time.I also threw in a handful of frozen peas at the same time.Thanks for a great recipe
