"Shrimp is simmered in a pork sauce. This recipe is my Grandmother's version of shrimp in Lobster sauce, it's the best that I know of. Try it out and see for your self, you'll love it."

water, or as needed
I agree that the recipe, as is, is bland. I changed the 1 c water to chiken stock since I saw that as part of the sauce on a different web site. Much more flavorful. Also, I added a T of fermented black beans which I rinsed before adding after I stir fried the shrimp. This was much more like the flavor I get from restaurant take out. Good basic recipe.
I was reading the review by Ms. Bowes. Maybe the reason it tasted a little on the bland side is that there is a discrepancy in the amount of water to use in the mixture. It probably should be 1 cup of water and not the 2 cups you are instructed to use. The tablespoon of water to a tablespoon of starch is correct.
This was very quick and simple to make - took almost no time at all actually! It was OK tasting, different and pleasant but I thought it was rather bland - needed some more flavor. Also, although it was OK in it's own right, this isn't at all like the shrimp in lobster sauce from our local Chinese restaurant. I'm going to keep looking. Thanks for the recipe.
I LOVE this recipe! Quick, easy and delicious! I like to add chunked lobster meat for an extra treat!!!
