    Hey Jude's Note:

    This is a great appetizer, or pupu as they call them in Hawaii. Serve a platter of this with toothpicks. Decrease the amount of red pepper if you want it less spicy. This comes from Pupus, an Island Tradition by Sachi Fukuda. This makes about 4-6 appetizer servings

      Woww...This is really yummy dish. My kids and I really loved it. Thanks for sharing this recipe. I'm using japanese tofu for this this recipe and I deep fried the tofu (coated with a bit of cornstarch) first before added to the sauce and shrimps.

      I made this last night for the first time, and I loved it. I added oyster mushrooms to the first cooking step, and liked them. Very easy, though I found the timings were a bit off (my shrimp was cooked before I added the hoisin sauce), but continued to cook through and it was delicious. I made myself stop after one bowl so I'd have left-overs for tonight!

      This was such an excellent quick tasty dinner! I tossed the tofu cubes in a little cornstarch to help them get a crispy edge before stir frying but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. Will definitely be making this again! Thanks!
