Sweet and Spicy Shrimp

Recipe by meltedcountry

This is one of my all time favorite shrimp recipes, and I got it from Weight Watchers of all places! I have in my notes that a serving size is 4.5 oz and only 2 points. Note: I usually double the sauce and add a handful of snow peas with the vegetables

Very good! I like Chinese food with shrimp, so this was nice. I used a full 2 lbs. of shrimp (frozen and defrosted) and upped the sauce a bit. I also was able to omit the oils when I used a 12 oz bag of 3 peppers and onion frozen mix and a 12 oz bag of broccoli cuts (good tip, Indiana Debbie!). Only thing I need to do next time is add a bit more cornstarch as it was a bit runny (but I didn't measure well, I think!) I served it over brown rice.... thanks for the recipe!
