Spicy Hawaiian Papaya & Shrimp Stir-Fry

READY IN: 20mins
Top Review by Helen Ganim

I was so excited to try this recipe,a nd followed it exactly. However, it has no flavor. It wasn't sweet, it wasn't spicey. I gave it two stars because the consistency of the sauce was nice. We added Sirachi sauce and a sweet chili sauce to eat it. I don't think I will make this again.
