I really like this recipe because it is healthy and yummy. I think I'll change it up just a little bit next time. I think the sauce wasn't quite enough so I might make a little more. Also, it needed a little spicing up so I think I will throw in some ground cayenne pepper. But this is a good base recipe and you can throw in the veggies you want and adjust the spices as desired.

I had some shrimp to use and was in the mood for stir fry, so I came across this and was sold. The only changes I made were for personal preference...threw in some zuchinni, used green instead of red peppers and I did make extra sauce because 1) I marinated the shrimp in for about 30 minutes and 2) I just love extra sauce. Gettin hungry just thinking about it...Thanks! Read More

I really liked the sauce in this recipe, it "glued" everything together well, but wasn't soupy. I added 1/2 tsp of crushed red pepper and 1 tsp of sesame oil to the sauce. Next time I would up the soy sauce by another tablespoon too. Definitely a keeper! Read More

This was a great way to try something new as far as stir-fry goes, but it wasn't the most "WOW" dish I have ever had, and my hubby thought it was a little bland. But overall, it was good and very easy. With a little more ginger and a few more cloves garlic, it should taste a lot better. I may try making it again with some alterations. Read More

This rating is just for the stir-fry sauce only, which was really good! I doubled the water/cornstarch, soy, ginger and garlic. Added diced chicken instead of shrimp, and used a bag of frozen stir-fry veggies. Served on top of brown rice for an easy, quick meal! Read More

Light and flavorful without being overpowering. Use uncooked shrimp as pre-cooked will give it a different taste. Read More

Have made this several times & varied ingredients slightly (broccoli only; added honey; extra ginger/soy; no nuts) and it's always very good. Read More

Had to double the sauce definetely. The flavor wasnt exactly what I was expecting, it was very peanut tasting to me. But the sauce was pleasantly creamy Read More
