I (Lil'Bit) tried this recipe and thought it was very good. I added a bit more soy sauce though, and it was still very good.

This was good but can be made better by tweaking it some...sorry. Here are some adjustments I made to suit our tastes, and the end result was delicious. First of all, to save time and stove space, I cooked rice in microwave while preparing other foods. (used one cup uncooked rice) I didn't use celery, used 1/2 yellow onion, one half red, and 1 bell pepper. I added a little teriyaki sauce and a teaspoon of soy sauce to sesame oil when I stirfried my shirmp. When putting all of them together at end of cooking, the vegetables, shrimp, and rice...I used 1/4 cup of soysauce and 1/2 teaspoon of ginger, and mixed well...hope this helps.

My 4 year old son loved it! But I needed much more soy sauce. The sesame oil gave it a very good taste

I thought this was really bland. I don't want to have to drown it in soy sauce for flavor. Maybe I didn't use enough sesame oil?

nice light flavor compared to heavy oil taste from restaurants. did use more sesame oil. cooked rice in programmable rice cooker (to save time), cooked eggs in sesame oil, then cooked shrimp in the sesame oil, then mixed all together in the skillet with more sesame oil and soy sauce for color. Family liked. will make again.

Not a lot of flavor and way too much rice.

Like others, I added more soy sauce, and liked it. I also used brown rice over white, and langostino over shrimp. It came out well!
