    This was a good basic recipe. I didn't measure exactly and I added garlic powder and salt to give it some flavor. I made a sweet and spicy garlic and ginger sauce to go with it.

    I didn't do exact measurements, nor did I use ice water (I used cold tap water), but this turned out really good. I used white rice flour with a bit of almond flour and it didn't seem to absorb a ton of oil which was great. I will definitely use this recipe again.

    I made this last night using shrimp, green beans, and mushrooms. Fantastic. I had to add considerably more than 1 cup of water though. I think this may have been because the flour mix I used has a lot of corn starch in it. I plan to make this for dinner with some non-GF friends. I don't think they will be able to tell the difference. Thanks **Jubes**!
