Sweet and Spicy Shrimp

"This is one of my all time favorite shrimp recipes, and I got it from Weight Watchers of all places! I have in my notes that a serving size is 4.5 oz and only 2 points. Note: I usually double the sauce and add a handful of snow peas with the vegetables"

  1. 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!
  2. 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.
  3. I reduced the recipe to serve 1, doubled the amount of soy sauce leaving the remainder of the ingredients alone. It is a super quick and delicious dinner. It was served over Rice Pilav With Orzo Recipe #134294 with a side of steamed broccoli.
  4. I made this exactly as written and it was excellent. I served it with a side of broccoli but next time I think I will add the broccoli to everything else and stir fry it too! I bet this would also be good with chicken. Thank you for a great recipe.
