Very good! I like Chinese food with shrimp, so this was nice. I used a full 2 lbs. of shrimp (frozen and defrosted) and upped the sauce a bit. I also was able to omit the oils when I used a 12 oz bag of 3 peppers and onion frozen mix and a 12 oz bag of broccoli cuts (good tip, Indiana Debbie!). Only thing I need to do next time is add a bit more cornstarch as it was a bit runny (but I didn't measure well, I think!) I served it over brown rice.... thanks for the recipe!
This dish looks great plated because it has a wonderful mixture of colors. I did throw in some snow peas and used red bell peppers. The only thing I did not care for was that it was a bit too salty for my liking. Next time I will try low sodium soy sauce. I'm not sure if that will lower the salt taste. I have never used it before. Thanks for posting.
