Better than take-out! This was an easy recipe to cut in half. I had a great dinner and it tasted even better reheated for lunch the next day. Thanks for sharing.

My family of three liked this. I used precooked shrimp and had a nice dinner ready - quick! I didn't use all of the green onion, but ended up thinking it lacked a little flavor, so I would add it all. If you like salty, add a little more soy sauce. My 8 year old has asked for shrimp every dinner since. Thanks
