Reviews – Stir-Fried Shrimp in Garlic Sauce Recipes

This was to die for good! Quick and easy too! Hubby said was one of the best recipes I’ve cooked and was restaurant quality!! Made mostly as directed, used Saki, doubled sauce as others had suggested and maybe threw in a couple more than 9 cloves of garlic as we love garlic in this house. Also used chili in garlic sauce, and the peppers, except I’m not sure they were Thai, probably were mexican de arbol, which was all I could find at the Kroger. Used a mixture of grated carrots, fresh green beans and red bell pepper for my veggies. Served over flavorful Jasmine rice. Will definitely be making again, and a perfect recipe for guests!

Very tasty with a bit of a bite. Well worth the hunt for Thai chiles. I used Srichacha instead of chili paste in the same amount. For veggies,I used onions, baby corn, broccoli, snow peas and I julienned some carrots. (And it’s 5 WW points plus per serving so that’s a winner!)

Amazing!! The flavor was WONDERFUL! My boyfriend and I LOVE GARLIC so this hit the spot! I used bak choy, snow peas, and green bell peppers. We’ll probably use red bell peppers next time to add some color to it, but everything just went so perfectly together. Thanks for the recipe! My boyfriend was VERY impressed with this dish…so was I. Yum!!

Delicious! My family loved this flavorful, quick and easy stir-fry. For the vegetables, I used snow peas, mushrooms, red bell pepper, celery, onion, broccoli, and carrots. I used the sake instead of the sherry and peanut oil instead of the vegetable oil. I would love to have added the Thai chiles but my store was out of them. I doubled the recipe and served it over steamed Jasmine rice. Everyone gave this 2-thumbs up! Thank you for sharing this fantastic recipe…it is definitely a keeper!

Just needed a quick shrimp stir fry for dinner tonight. Had *most* of the ingredients in hand so I thought I’ll just play it by ear. Things didn’t start out right at first. While mixing the sauce, I mistook a carton of beef broth for chicken broth. But oh well. Didn’t have rice wine vinegar so used white wine vinegar. Didn’t have sherry or sake so just used white wine. Didn’t bother with the chiles as I was cooking for two kids, 7 and 2. But when all was said and done, this actually turned out fantastic! I was so happy that everything came together and the kids and hubby ate without complaint. I’m so glad I found this recipe!
