Very easy to make. My parents are living with us and the low-sodium is great for his cardiac diet...was not missing a thing.
Great addition to my cookbook. I used fresh Maine Shrimp and the sweet sour taste was exquisite. Topped with Parm-Rom-Asiago blend and red pepper flakes. I added extra chicken broth to get right consistency and doubled the tomato paste. Thanks for a real keeper
I really had to doctor up this recipe in order to get any flavor. I added extra italian herbs so that it did not taste like watered down tomato paste.
