Don't let some of the ingredients fool you -- this spicy shrimp makes a simple, impressive dish, which I usually make for company. For more or less heat, adjust amount of red pepper. Serve over hot steamed rice.

What an excellent recipe! So easy and absolutely delicious. I added some brocolli to mine and doubled the ingredients for the sauce as per Gloria in Tampa's suggestion. I served this dish on a bed of Vermicelli noodles. Will definely prepare this dish on a regular basis.

This is so yummy! I doubled the sauce like other reviewers suggested...I served it over quinoa using Basic Quinoa and a side of steamed broccoli for an excellent meal...I also used fresh minced ginger instead of the powder stuff...made for "Help a Naked Recipe" tag game for recipes without photos...

This recipe was incredibly simple and delicious! I doubled the sauce as some suggested and it was the perfect amount. Also I added broccoli but otherwise went strictly by the recipe. I might use a little less crushed pepper next time, but it wasnt unbearably spicy. Yum!
