    I didn't add as much cornstarch and it was still super tasty. I will definitely eat this with some rice next time to soak up some of the seasoning. Otherwise, it was great and super easy to make.

    Really simple and easy. However, nix the cilantro. It completely overwhelmed the dish. With the salty-ness of the oyster and soy sauce, it tasted like salty cilantro. I’ll try again with some tweaks.

    This was an easy recipe and turned out good with a few adjustments for my family. The sauce was a bit salty (used low sodium soy sauce) for us so I added about 1 tbs of honey and red pepper flakes. I was out of fresh ginger so I used ground ginger added to the sauce. Also added fresh broccoli with onions and garlic. To have a little more sauce I added 3/4 cup low sodium chicken broth and a slurry of 1 tsp corn starch with 1 tsp water to thicken sauce. I gave 4 stars because of salt content.

    Very yummy More veggies would make it a bit more filling I served over brown rice and added red cabbage, asparagus and pea pods. Bean sprouts would have made it... Thank you

    it turned out great. I made it with cooked shrimp & mushrooms though. I just heated the aromatics a bit, put in the mushrooms, then added the rest last. I only added the shrimp in the end long enough to heat.

    This is a delicious and easy to make. An excellent dish served with rice. After watching the video I decided to make this with fresh Basel instead of cilantro it was absolutely delicious!

    Great recipe, will make again. Very easy, versatile to substitute ingredients. I added red capsicum, snow peas, red onion, extra garlic, ginger and added 3 red chilli

    Way too salty. I don't have a wok. That may have made a difference? Shrimp ended up overcooked and slimy. Probably won't make it again.

    OMG! This was soooooo yummy!!!! It was truly delicious!! Thank you for sharing your family recipe with us!! We added extra veggies which made it a very fulfilling meal. Would recommend doubling or tripling the sauce if you use a cup or more of veggies and/or regular mushrooms (we used shiitake) because they really soak up the juice! The ginger was strong enough that I don’t think I would double it; same goes for the green onion. This will be a staple in our meal planning rotation!

    Quick, healthy and tasty--it's a winner. The quantity is small though, so I added a red pepper and snap peas to the mix. I would add even more veggies next time, such as mushrooms and broccoli. Loved the ginger/garlic combo.

    we all loved it, including the picky eaters in the house. I used brown rice flour instead of cornstarch.

    Really good! Just the right combo of spices and sauces that go well with shrimp. And great directions too.

    I made with chicken, broccoli and mushrooms & a Serrano for spice. The sauce was delicious. Very flavorful.

    Amazing, so easy but so delicious. Never thought I will be able to cook anything good as this :) Did almost exactly as recipe, but in the end I squeezed little lemon juice in, but just a little.

    Amazing exactly like a house special recipe!! Added more oyster sauce and soy sauce to make it more caramelized to make it more saucy to eat with! Directions didn't instruct how to use cilantro but we tossed the cilantro in the wok in the end for a couple of seconds to lock the flavor in

    Really easy to make. I used fish sauce in place of the oyster sauce. I also added red pepper flakes. It turned out great

    This was really easy and surprisingly tasty. Dare I say "take out" quality? I didn't have cilantro, so I just added more scallions. Will definitely make this again.
