    Great! Family liked it because it tasted like it was from a restaurant. I added a squeeze of line and a pinch of sugar and topped it with cilantro. Served with Quinoa.

    Total perfection with a big squeeze of lime at the end. I may have added a bit more sugar than the recipe specified.

    I served it over wild rice and roasted acorn squash which gave it better texture and a sweet, nutty flavor. I cooked the shrimp as directed but added fresh, diced jalapeño ( 2 as they were pretty mild) in with the garlic and ginger, and then some halved cherry tomatoes towards the end. I finished it with 2 to 3 tablespoons of fresh lemon juice about a minute before taking it off the heat and topped with roasted pumpkin seeds. It was restaurant-worthy.

    It was good actually. I would make it again. Turned it into stir fry with some vegetables, mushrooms and some soy sauce and substituted the vegetable oil for Pam Butter Spray.

    Ok, so I got busy and let this sit in the brine to long. The shrimp came out salty. I will try it again but I make sure I allow myself enough time to complete this dish as directed.

    I’ve cause I was in a hurry I added everything directly in the wok substituted sugar with honey and added a bit of fresh coriander to add smell and soy sauce to darken the shrimp

    Nice dish. Paired with white rice and broccoli. Not as much chili flavor as I anticipated. Added red chili flakes for spice.

    I thawed frozen shrimp in the brine& it was fantastic. V. beginner on cooking& fam said it was my best pescatarian meal yet. Creates plenty of spare seasoning after cooking the shrimp to drizzle over rice, quinoa or any grain. Lots of flavor& the ginger& garlic spread nicely on rice.

    Very good and easy to make. Only seasoned with a sprinkle of salt and pepper. I did not measure so it was not too salty. Would make again. Served w squash polenta so it was a spin on shrimp and grits. Good fall twist.

    It was delicious and super easy to prep! The only thing I’ll change next time is the salt amount. Way too salty for me personally.

    This dish is awesome (as usual since its from once upon a chef). With the fresh ginger and garlic it's hard to stop eating the shrimp. I made it for thanksgiving this past year and everyone loved it
