"From Cooking Light. Just like Chinese takeout or PF Chang's Orange Peel Shrimp (without the orange peel). This takes no time to make and you already have most of the ingredients. We halved the recipe and cooked up 11 large shrimp from Costco for 2 people. At first we burned the garlic and ginger, so we started over and turned the heat down to medium. Enjoy! ** I took note from a reviewer and added some steamed broccoli with the sauce in step 6 - AWESOME! **"
Serving Size: 1 (225 g)
Servings Per Recipe: 4
"I used precooked shrimp and cut back on the honey a bit, as hubby is not crazy about sweet mixed with savory. I also did not use fresh orange juice, but it still came out very well. I added some red pepper flakes & cayenne pepper for heat, and it made a very good dinner."
"Most excellent! I added steamed broccoli and 8 ounces of sliced mushrooms. I doubled all the sauce ingredients and served over white rice. FABULOUS! Added the 2 full tablespoons of Sambal Olek and added more to my individual bowl as well. SPICY!! YuMMY!"
"This is a fabulous shrimp recipe. It was sweet & spicy at the same time & easy to make. I cut down on the chili paste by about 1/2 and that was just right for us. I used about a pound of shrimp and also threw in some leftover firm tofu & it tasted great. We'll definitely make again."
"Easy & Delicious. I added broccoli and cut down on the honey. Next time will add the full amount."
"This recipe is simply delicious. Spicy and sweet. I added stir fried sliced mushroom and zucchinis. I served it with angel hair pasta. It's a keeper. I will be cooking it up again. Simple to make. Everybody loved it."
"Made this sauce to use with a vegetable stir fry. Really good flavors and easy to make."
"It really is as good as a restaurant, and it's probably got 1/4th the calories! I've used the recipe with chicken also."
"What a versitile recipe! I put a spin on it because I had a bunch of veggies I needed to use. I added red bell pepper, bok choy, broccoli, and snow peas. I doubled the sauce due to the added veggies and substituted sweet chili sauce because our daughter doesn't like spicy! All of that on top of thai rice noodles and we all had a great meal!"
"Fantastic recipe! I added sliced mushrooms, red bell pepper, snow peas and canned mini corn. Definitely a keeper!!"
"YUM! This was fantastic. I too used less of the chili paste with garlic and it was plenty spicy. We used peapods and red peppers as our vegetables. I plan to try it with chicken as well and with the addition of pineapples since it resembles a sweet & sour. I added some toasted and crushed sesame seeds at the end and I think that was the perfect finish!"
"awesome and so easy! Tossed in a red pepper and broccoli lightly steamed at step 6 (thx Pinot Grigio) served over brown rice. Nice amount of heat and very tasty. For sure I'll make it again. Would be nice with chicken too. Thanks a lot!"
"Delicious! Great blend of tangy, sweet, and spicy. Easy and fast, too. Thanks for this!"
"I kind of surprised myself with this one, I had to pick up a few of the items at the store, but so what! It was worth it! This is my second time back to get the recipe, which is why Im rating it a 5. Little experience needed - Overall fairly simple! Love It! Love It!"
"LOVED it - Made this for dinner tonight - but with shrimp for me and chicken for husband (since he does not like shrimp). I doubled the sauce since I was making it in 2 separate pans. I substituted the fresh OJ with Tropicana Organic OJ since that was all I had on hand and added a pinch of sugar. Didn't have the chili paste either so used chili sauce which was really spicy but we like it that way. Served over a bed of steamed rice. Also lightly steamed some broccoli and added that also at step 6. Husband loves Chinese and said it was one of the best dished I made. Highly recommended."
