  • “Delicious! I really enjoyed this recipe. It was very good, and my family really liked it as well. I did make some changes, just out of convenience. Instead of broiling the shrimp, I made a stir-fry. I tossed them in with some store-bought frozen stir-fry veggies. I served the whole dish over fried rice. I also added some ginger. It was perfect! Thanks for sharing.”
