    Hey Jude's Note:

    This shrimp has a wonderful flavor! This is a recipe I adapted from Nina Simonds' book "A Spoonful of Ginger". Prep time includes marinading time. ***Note: there is 2 tablespoons of ginger in this recipe. If ginger is not to your taste, then I suggest you move along :)

      I love the ease of this recipe and how tender the shrimp came out. I just got a bamboo steamer, so am looking for more recipes to use with it, so I tagged this in Aus/NZ Recipe Swap. The ginger flavor was a bit strong, so I would try cutting it to 1/2 T and maybe increasing the sesame to 1 T and the onions to 2 T, just my preference. I steamed broccoli in the top layer and it was all done in 5 minutes or so. Think I will save the cabbage, puree and put in something else for extra nutrition. NOTE: When I first made this, I now realized that I cut the recipe in half, EXCEPT for the ginger! LOL So, obviously, it was too heavy on the ginger. I will make this again, as I loved the steaming. So I uppped the stars bcz of my stupidity!
