I created this recipe for those who have a sweet tooth but also enjoy a bit of spice in their life! Substitute chicken for shrimp if desired.

This was okay but definitely not something that I would serve frequently. I cut red pepper flakes to 1/2 tsp. and the heat level was just about right. Read More

I love spicy but this recipe is waaaaay past spicy! 2 teaspoons of red pepper flakes? We couldn't eat it. It would have been good with a pinch or less - or the red pepper flakes could have been left out completely. Read More

My husband and I really liked this. My grown son didn't care for the heavy honey flavor. We used just under a teaspoon of the crushed red pepper and it was still very spicy - my husband would like it better with even less. I used 2 zucchini like someone else said in their review and more ginger but other than that I did everything else according to the recipe. We served with whole wheat pasta. We'll make this again with some slight modification. Read More

The 1/2 c honey plus the cornstarch made this very gloppy. 1/2 tsp - 1 tsp of red pepper flakes would have been adequate. I ended up adding chicken stock lime juice and white wine to get some liquid into it. Read More

I thought this recipe was excellent. My only words of advice are to definitely have everything pre-chopped and the honey and corn starch mixed before you start so that everything can be added quickly. Everything cooks pretty fast so it is really great if you are wanting a quick dinner. Read More
