      This wasn't the version I was expecting when I made the recipe. Good, and the shrimp were excellent. I also thought it needed quite a bit more spice.

      This receipe is easy to follow and smells terrific. I would add more soy sauce but that just my taste. the meal was excellent. Even my southern girl wife who has never tasted shrimp and lobster sauce is still raving about it. good job.

      I went back and forth--4 stars/5 stars. Pestered a friend who ate it and his opinion was the same. What we decided was that our palates have changed (as Americans vis-a-vis Chinese food) since the time, many years ago, when one always ordered Shrimp and Lobster Sauce at the local Chinese restaurant. This recipe is excellent--it's just under-spiced for what I now look for in a Chinese recipe. However, the cooking instructions are perfect--the shrimp (even when warmed up the next day) were perfect--just the right texture. I did add one little hot pepper and, in retrospect, should have added more garlic and a bit more sesame oil. But, really, this was a very pleasant trip down food memory lane
