A flavorful dish in less than 15 minutes and under 200 calories. I saved time by using already peeled and deveined shrimps. The outcome surpass my expectation. The finely chopped ginger blended well with other fresh ingredients yet yield a subtle exotic taste. Thanks for sharing your recipe.
Oh my gosh! It tasted just like my Grandma used to make. Talk about aunthentic chinese food. This is as close as u can get it. Thanks for posting.
I made this for my husband and I when the kids were out . . . we loved it! I did all the prep work ahead of time, and when we were ready to eat, dinner was on the table within 10 minutes. I wouldn't serve this to my kids (ages 9 & 11) because it's pretty spicy, although my husband said he'd like it even spicier!
