Mmmmm mm! If the fact that I made what I thought would be for two nights ended up being only enough for tonight says anything then it will speak to how much Hubs and I enjoyed this. Bland? Not for us but we appreciate the flavor of the food itself and don t like masking it with a lot of distracting seasoning. For that reason I didn t even use the ginger which neither of us cares for. The sesame oil adds just what is needed for complexity of flavor and I also added a dribble of mirin (sweet rice wine) to the cornstarch/soy sauce/ chicken broth mixture. While it wasn t necessary I knew it would be a good fit. Instead of garlic powder I tossed in some fresh minced tho I don t think the dish would suffer using the garlic powder as directed. For the cut up fresh vegetables I used what I had in the fridge zucchini mushrooms sweet onion and baby bok choy. As for the shrimp I used the big guys 16-20 count. I tossed them in the hot pan straight from the freezer and they were done in just a few minutes in other words don t even bother thawing them first. I m sure I ll make this again exactly the same way. Read More

I had no cornstarch so I used two tablespoon of all purpose flour I was out of chicken broth so I made a 2 cups of very mild chicken boullion from the Knorr's grandule. I boiled the water for the boullion with the shrimp tails that I removed from my frozen shrimp. Cooled then strained the broth. The fully cooked tail-on package cost less. I only made 3 cups of rice and combined everything together. I used cabbage and asparagus and onion. I added the shrimp only after everything was done. Covered and let stand about 10 minutes...yummm!

I doubled the soy sauce and sesame oil. Also I added a tablespoon of Teriyaki sauce. I used two cloves of fresh garlic instead of the garlic powder. It was really good. Read More

This was bland. I decided to make the sauce and marinate the shrimp and veggies in it and grill them. Read More
