This was very tasty. I did not have fresh ginger so I used ground ginger (only ½ teaspoon). Wish I had the fresh ginger. When I make it again, which I well, fresh ginger is on the list. I served it with Spinach and Red Pepper Couscous which you can find on this site, lovely combination. PS don’t forget the wine:)

I thought it was a little bland. It's a good base but it needs something else. My husband added soy sauce to his and that seemed to help. I think maybe add some soy sauce in place of part of the wine and a little lemon juice to finish it and maybe some red pepper flakes in with onions for heat.

interesting and different, but not my favorite.

I couldn't believe it, but the wine with ginger was very tasty. My folks liked it too. I added some more veggis, such as fresh bean sprouts and served it with basmati rice cooked in coconut milk.

This was a good dish, but lacked a little zip even though I used the fresh ginger. I dislike cilantro so I omitted it entirely and added sliced water chestnuts. If I were to make it again, I would add pepper flakes just to give the flavor a little boost.

Good recipe. I added a little more ginger and 1/4 tsp of red pepper flakes.

So boring. Would not make again. The only reason I am even giving it two stars is that I doctored it w/red pepper flakes, Asian chili sauce, fish sauce and Cajun seasoning to give it any kind of flavor. Before that all it tasted like was plain warm shrimp.

Very tasty and flavorful! The only request in my house was for more of the sauce. I may try to tweak the next time I make this to honor the request, but it was very quick and easy. A great weeknight dinner!
