This recipe has a good basis. I changed a few things based on what I had available. I used regular margarine, white onion instead of scallions and ginger spice. I also made it with noodles as a previous reviewer suggested, but based on the amount of liquid present, I'm thinking rice might be better. I had to add a fair amount of sugar to counteract all the salty ingredients. I also added curry powder to add more flavor. Otherwise, it was good.
This was one of the best shrimp recipes I have ever cooked. The only thing I changed was the rice to noodles. I am sure rice would have been just as good. I also cut my shrimp small because we get huge shrimp here near the gulf. While slicing to devain I just cut all the way through to split the shrimp. This is a keeper and a must do monthly recipe.
