I made this last night and while it was good, it did not blow me away. I will make it again, but I think I will buy a wok first. When you make this, if you are using a pan used a really really large one!!!!. I did followed the recipe, but added a little 5 spice powder at the end of cooking for more flavor, also omit the extra salt, soy sauce is salty enough. Another tip (do not over cook your shrimp as you will be adding to the pan which will cook more). My shrimp came out wonderful!!!..Like everyone else I added the bean sprouts in step 3... PS USE ONLY REQUIRED AMOUNT OF SESAME OIL VERY STRONG FLAVOR. UPDATE!!!! I HAVE SINCE PURCHASE A WOK AND I TRIED THIS RECIPE AGAIN, IT WAS GREAT THIS TIME I USED A NEW TIRCK FOR THE RICE, OTHERS STATED RICE WAS SOGGY, IT'S TO MUCH TO COOK THE RICE THE NIGHT BEFORE ECT ECT. WELL MY TRICK IS TO BUY READY MADE RICE. I USED UNCLE BENS GARDEN HARVEST, IT'S READY TO USE ANY TIME FROM PACKAGE TO WOK OR PAN, AND IT ALREADY HAS PEAS IN THE RICE. AND NOW HAVING A WOK HAS MADE THIS DISH SO MUCH EASIER. MY RATING IS GOING UP FROM 4*** TO 5****
