      Oh wow, what a great recipe. Recently we spent a month in Indonesia and this dish certainly brought back some wonderful memories. My only changes were to double the glaze mixture and add a small bunch of asparagus (cut in 1-inch lengths) and two generous handfuls of bean sprouts. Served with steamed rice and ketjap manis, to be added at the table. Thanks so much for posting.

      Delicious! Reduced the shrimp by half, but kept the rest the same. Made 2 servings, without other sides. Altered cooking directions, and stir-fired the green beans and set aside before proceeding (saves a dirty pan). thanks for sharing!
