    TeresaS's Note:

    This is out of one of my Weight Watchers cookbooks called "Take-Out Tonight!" Both DH and I really liked this dish. You can use 1/2 shrimp and 1/2 sea scallops if you prefer. You can also replace the asparagus with broccoli florets or fresh snow peas.

      This was very easy to make up. I used orange peppers, broccoli and mushrooms (which was all I had on hand) My DH loved this, but I found that 1T of chili garlic sauce was a bit much. I will add garlic next time, to round out the flavors better. By WW calculations, this recipe turned out to be 8 points rather than 5...also, we had enough for 5 servings. I would do this one again! Thanks for posting!!

      We were hoping for more. The ginger was overwhelming. If I made this again I would omit the ginger and substitute fresh minced garlic. I like heat and this could have handled some more for me. Overall it was okay but not great.

      I thought this was just fantastic!! The asparagus in the store was pretty pathetic looking so I substituted brocolli. Other than that I followed exactly! Very flavorful and was easy enough to make for a week night dinner. I used 1 tablespoon of chili-garlic paste and we did add a dab more at the table and mixed it in. Perfect amount of heat for us! Thanks for a wonderful supper!
