Very tasty although I did make some alterrations. Instead of discarding the marinade I cooked the shrimp in it like a stir fry sauce. I also added a little bit of extra soya sauce, used fresh garlic instead of powder, added some imitation crab and cooked it with steamed broccoli. Will definitely make this tasty dish again!

I made just a couple of changes. I added a clove of minced garlic and a drizzle of honey to the marinade. I also only let it sit for 5 minutes since we were in a hurry. I added the marinade to the pan and cooked the shrimp in it. Although the recipe made plenty of marinade for the amount of shrimp, next time I will double this so that I have some sauce to pour down over the shrimp and rice. Read More

Simple and delicious! I doubled the shrimp and added a package of frozen stir-fry veggies and then served over rice. My fiance absolutely loved it! Read More

I do much of the cooking and my wife wanted something with shrimp, so I searched for a new and simple way to prepare it and found this recipe. I already planned to add sweet peppers and green onions. I was surprised the onion wasn't an ingredient in this recipe since it is pictured with it. Not only adds to the presentation, but tastes great. Much credit to Jennifer for submitting this recipe, and credit to other reviewers whose advice I took. Such as, used fresh minced garlic instead of powder, used lite soy sauce, cooked the shrimp in all the marinade, removed and cooked broccoli florets in the marinade, then added peppers, then onion, and cooked all until tender crisp, and drizzled remaining marinade over rice. Will definitely make this again and will try with Asian noodles instead of rice for a change up. Read More

A very tasty recipe, but I had to double the shrimp (my husband likes to eat). I actually used cook shrimp and after marinating, I just heated it up in the frying pan. It's a keeper, and so easy to make. Read More

This recipe is good, but it is missing a little something. I even added a little honey as other reviewers suggested, and it still needs a little something more. I tripled the sauce recipe so I would have enough to pour on rice. If you really like sauce, I would do more than triple it, it really doesn't make a lot of sauce. Also, you might want to go a little lighter on the sesame oil, as it can over power the soy sauce. I also threw in some frozen broccoli. I don't know why this recipe calls for the shrimp to be removed from the marinade. Don't do that, just pour it all in a pan together so you have sauce for your rice or noodles. Everyone will probably need to tweak this according to personal taste but it is worth making. Read More
