I usually double the sauce in this recipe and I like to add carrots, too.

Is great,fiance won't eat shrimp so it was all mine.LOL I did not use tomato paste as I didn't want to open a whole can for so little so I used ketchup.Thank you for this one.
Yummy, yummy! This was so good, and my fiance and I agree with the other reviews, better than takeout! I doubled the recipe as suggested, and it was perfect! Didn't have sesame oil, so used olive oil, and I don't think it made a difference. Thanks luvmybge!
delicious! i think there's a little tiny bit too much tomato paste, but overall deliciiiious!
