Good recipe. I had to add a little more sugar because I added too much soy sauce. It was easy to put together. Thank you for posting.

This is a good recipe. I used lite soy sauce, added a little bit of kosher salt to the shrimp b4 cooking, and about doubled the recipe. I also used cabbage, carrots, and green peppers instead of the other veggies.

I altered this recipe for my taste, and it was delicious. I made the basic sauce recipe, reduced to make enough for 1-2. Then I stir-fried a clove of garlic, thinly sliced, and a little freshly grated gingerroot in peanut oil until the garlic was just white, then I added some broccoli and sliced celery, followed by snow peas and green onion. Then I added the sauce and the shrimp (frozen, cooked, peeled shrimp, thawed) and cooked until thickened and hot. I served it over hot jasmine rice. Yum! The sauce really made the stir-fry. It's a keeper! Thanks for posting, Pierre Dance.
