"A delicious spicy stir-fry. If you like it hotter, stir in some sambal oelek (chile paste) to your dish at the end. Goes great with rice or noodles."

    Not very "saucy", simply coats the shrimp. And not SPICY at all, like normal Szechuan from a Chinese restaurant. Need to either add a chili pepper (Thai?) or bump up the pepper flakes. Comes together very fast though.

    Okay, but not great. I doubled the catsup, though. Maybe my fault. One star. Sorry.
