The title should read "simple and spectacular" - great for those following a low fat regime - but tasty enough to satisfy all appetites.

As I was making this dish, I thought to myself "There are no ingredients here to add flavor--just soy sauce and chicken stock." I stayed the course and followed the recipe to a tee. When I tasted the dish, there was absolutely NO FLAVOR!!! I agree with the reviewers who mentioned tasteless. Very bland, no taste, waste of good shrimp, won't make it again.

This was quite tasty! I omitted the salt, as I figured the soy sauce was salty enough. Next time, I'd make a little more sauce and toss in extra snow peas. Great taste, low cal, easy to make.

I thought this recipe tasted like it was from a Chinese restaurant. I didn't have cornstarch, green onions, snow peas or tomatoes. I substitued with flour, 1 tsp ground ginger, and broccolli. Came out perfect.

Family enjoyed it, left out the tomatoes, and next time may try low sodium soy sauce, or leave out the salt. Took other reviewers advise and added a little sesame oil, will probably try to add a little cajun seasoning next time or Red pepper. Good weeknight meal, served over White Rice with Egg Rolls.

This was so good. My 8 year old son helped me make it and it came out perfect. We both loved it very much.
