  1. Just finished this for dinner and it was great! The flavors were amazing and loved the little kick of the cayenne!
  2. Wonderful! We just had this for dinner it got rave reviews. So simple yet it tastes like it came from our favorite Chinese restaurant. Thank you Kittencal for another great recipe.
  3. I finally found a stir fry that the kids will eat! LOL! They will eat broccoli and carrots and love shrimp. I didn't have enough sesame oil to use for the sauteing, so I made up the difference with olive oil. I think using 2 T would have been too much anyways. Left out the cayenne and it still had a kick, but mild enough for us. I think I will double the veggies next time bcz there seemed to be plenty of sauce. Served with sushi rice. Thanks so much, Kitten! I'm thrilled to find a stir fry that EVERYONE will eat!
