In this strange recipe there seems no indication of when the SHRIMP get's stir fried. For new cooks this appears a rather catastrophic omission.

This was not at all spicy ~ I believe the sauce would benefit GREATLY by adding more garlic cloves, changing out the ketchup with chili sauce, and adding a sprinkle of red pepper flakes! I subbed slivered carrots and broccoli for the red and green peppers in the recipe.
