Made this for dinner last night & the whole family loved it. My only change was at the end, mixed 1/4 c. water with 2tsp. cornstarch & added to the mixture. Gave it a nice glaze. Will make this again!!
I followed the recipe exactly. With the ginger/garlic/orange flavor combination, it seemed like this should have rocked. I was really disappointed.
Seldom serve shrimp so I was a bit hesitant. This recipe was very easy and didn't require any special ingredients. Not having all the recipe's vegetables, just tossed in anything that was handy and seemed practical. My group loved this meal. Needlessly, I didn't divulge any of these remarks...
I used chicken instead of shrimp (my family doesn't like seafood). The only other changes I made were to use 1/2 zucchini rather than the yellow squash (because my store didn't have it) and to add 2 tsp of brown sugar to cut the spiciness of the cayenne (we like spicy stuff - but there was too much cayenne for us). My kids didn't care for it (they doused it in teriyaki sauce), but my husband loved it. I would make it again for just the adults, but would cut the cayenne in half and perhaps add a bit more orange zest.
Thanks to MATTYSMOMMY for the brown sugar suggestion. I added 4 or 5 Tbl and still was wishing I had used less cayenne and more orange zest, but it was good anyway, the shrimp was very tasty, and my husband liked it. Will probably try it again with a few changes.
Added some mushrooms too, very good
I just happened to have some fresh ginger and garlic and shrimp was on sale so I thought I'd try this fresh seasoned stir-fry instead of using a pre-fab sauce. I always mix Udon noodles into my stir fry and was worried that it wouldn't be saucy enough but surprise, it blended in perfectly. I used broccoli, carrots and snow peas for my veggies. I'll make this again. Thanks for the great recipe!
Loved the garlic, orange and ginger combination. LOVED IT. I tripled the sauce,went very heavy on the garlic and ginger, and used a pinch of red pepper flakes instead of the cayenne, changed up some of the veggies... but the basic flavor of those three sauce ingredients together kicked . I'm totally going to make this again. Thanks!
