  1. My husband and I just loved this recipe. It had a hint of sweetness and the aroma of the sesame oil was nice. Next time, I would add little less sauce to it; that could have been my fault for accidently buying hoisin paste instead of sauce. Overall the dish was really good.

  2. Awesome!!

  3. Really enjoyed it and so did all my family, even my little sister whom does not like shrimp whatsoever! ;) I did double the sauce, and I also added a lot more sesame. It was really simple, and I just started cooking so it was nice to have an easy recipe to make... definetly a keeper!

  4. Really good. Easy to prepare

  5. Yummy!
