  1. Yor point is quite valid. With that understood, I am planning to make and look forward to the results. The rating is ‘five” based on having the ingredients!

  2. Excellent recipe. It’s great to have a go to quick dish for those nights when nobody knows what’s for dinner. Use hot honey for an extra kick.

  3. Love this wonder flavor, taste. Sorry to be a downer….the only way this is 10 minute prep is…..Everything is already prepared: broccoli cut and blanched, shrimp peeled and deveined and all the ingredients for sauce are pre measured, or crushed ie garlic.

  4. I used “Healthy Noodles” by Kilbun. I added fresh spinach, fresh mushrooms, shrimp and broccoli. I used low sodium teriyaki, ginger and garlic. Yum!

  5. I made this for dinner last night and it was a big hit! Very yummy! I used a combination of brown sugar and honey for the sweetener, 2 tablespoons of brown sugar 1 tablespoon of honey and I doubled the sauce recipe cause I like lots of sauce, used vermicelli noodles instead of rice. Next time I’ll probably use rice noodles and maybe a pinch of red pepper flakes, this one is a keeper and will be in my rotation!

  6. This was really good and it tasted great! Made with jasmine rice. This one is a keeper

  7. My try at this recipe turned out okay. I need to figure out how to add a sweet kick as it’s a little too salty.

  8. This was so good! I doubled the sauce except for the brown sugar—I only used 3 T of that. It was so good—better than takeout!

  9. This was so tasty! I made double the sauce just to have a bunch to drizzle on our rice. Definitely on our favorites list!

  10. It was so good! I had to double up on it for four people. I’ll definitely make this again.

  11. Totally scrumptious. Made it for the first time. Everyone e loved it
    Had to double up on ingredients because it was7 of us. Thanks for Sharing

  12. HI – enjoyed this quick hit. accidentally grabbed the chile oil instead of sesame oil and it gave it a great kick.

  13. This is the first time I have cooked anything remotely Asian. It was fantastic recipe . Will be making it again
