Asian chili-garlic sauce may be found in the Asian section of any major supermarket or in any Asian grocery store, If you like more heat then increase the red pepper flakes, but be careful as the chili-garlic sauce is spicy also! The shrimp needs to marinate for 30 minutes, prep time includes marinating time, you may want to double this it very good!

Delicious! I added a whole bunch of vegetables to make it a complete meal: green beans, bean sprouts, carrots, mushrooms, shredded cabbage. Great for those on WW, as the shrimp is the only thing with points, and those are very low.

Tasteful stir-fry, Kittencal. I generally have all the ingredients on hand so I know we'll be having this again. It was quick and easy to throw together but tasted like I'd slaved to get everything just right. It would be simple to add a few more vegetables if desired.
