I really enjoyed it. I disagree with people saying that oil for this food is too much. It might be because of my cultural background (More fat is better). I think using olive oil would solve that problem. It's healthier but still tasty. One thing. I think this recipe is more in small portion size. I tried to make for 4 but it was enough for 3. However, if you tend to have small portion, the recipe might be good. Two tips: 1) I replaced shrimp with chicken but I think it might be better to marinate and fry chicken before a little bit and 2) if you don't have cornstarch you can use normal flower to make it thick.
I've made and enjoyed t his several times, and noticed that I hadn't rated/reviewed it yet. I always make it exactly as written, using sunflower oil, sea salt, some "Penzeys Freshly Ground Pepper" and white onion. At first I tried larger shrimp, but then I thought that the 51-60 count shrimp worked better, so stuck with those. It is very tasty, a nice medley of ingredients. I will say that as written it's not very spicy (I like it hot!) and there's perhaps too much oil used. But all in all, I enjoyed this a lot, usually for three big dinners. I recommend it!
Tried this tonight and loved it! We don't eat seafood, so I substituted smoked sausage which I sauteed in the pan from the peppers and onions and added 8 minutes before the sauce was done. I think chicken would be great too or maybe andouille sausage.
The only changes I'll make less time are less oil in the sauce (and maybe olive oil instead of vegetable) and a little more cornstarch to make it a little thicker. But the flavor was great and my toddlers even ate it!
This recipe is one of my family's favs. I just cut down the amount of oil. Other than that it is excellent. Even my picky eaters like it
This Stuff is Good!!!!!!
THis dish was absolutely delicious!!! I made it for some friends in my one burner studio kitchen and it was so easy and very very tasty. Definitely a keeper!
I absolutely LOVED this receipe!! I honestly didn't think that I would like it but my brother in law made it for us and I LOVED it! I use frozen cooked baby shrimp and it's especially yummy with home grown peppers!
