Stir-Fry Shrimp With Spicy Orange Sauce

"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! **"

    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.

    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.
