    It was great!! I will be making this again!! Loved it!!
    Would cook sauce longer to make it more thick but it’s good as liquid too Would throw in more veggies next time too.

    My husband said it was better than a steak. I made this for 2 so used half the shrimp but the full recipe for the sauce and green onions. They mention the cornstarch but gave no amount. I used 1 tablespoon with the shrimp (remember I only cooked half the quantity in the recipe) and added 1 tablespoon to the ginger, garlic and red pepper flakes and the sauce was the correct thickness. It could have different additional vegetables with it but we made an Asian salad instead. All and all a great dinner.

    loved it! great flavor
    Delicious! I added Japanese breadcrumbs and cornstarch to make the shrimp crispy. I also added a bit of cornstarch to the sauce to thicken it. Yummy!

    This was really good. like others, i only used half the brown sugar. It would have been way too sweet otherwise. If you dont like spicy, use half of the red pepper. The ingredients are missing corn starch which you use to to coat the shrimp. It doesn't give good directions on the amount of oil to use. I just used 2 tablespoons in the sauce.

    Our family loves this! The shrimp is nice and crispy. The sauce is sweet. (Maybe we will reduce the sugar a bit) However, we will be making this often.

    Cut the sugar in half, was still very sweet. Will make again.

    It was ok, I think deep frying it would have made it a lot better like he/she said. Still not bad.

    It was delicious! I used tempura mix to get them to the same consistency as show in the picture. Definitely try this!

    Absolutely delicious, but my shrimp did not end up like the pictures. Mine were more pan fried than what looks like deep fried

    Pretty good. Recipe list doesn't include everything needed so read instructions and you'll find you need corn starch for this.

    Wonderfully I was a bit worried at first about the sauce I didn’t want it too salty so I laid back in the soy sauce a bit.
