Another Pierre Dance winner. This makes up beautifully, with shrimp as well as in a shrimp/chicken combo.The ingredients combine to make for a company quality meal. The sesame oil and rice vinegar makes for a special touch. Love that it tastes as good as it looks. Served on a white platter- makes for awesome presentation. One of those recipes that one keeps close at hand. Thank you Pierre.

This is a great sauce. Although I made it with shrimp, it could easily be used on pork or chicken too. You can also vary the vegetables to suit your taste or what is in the fridge. Many thanks for sharing.

Made this for supper last night. My cousin is allergic to garlic, so substituted it with lemongrass, and added about a quarter cup of fresh chopped cilantro... Holy Tastebud overload!!! Will certainly be making this again!

Excellent tastes and so quick to do. Loved all the veggies and did add more onion and bean sprouts just before serving.

I'm trying not to say this should be 10 stars....but will say it's definitely 5 . Wish we could say 10!
I made this for dinner tonight, and DH and DS kept leaving the table to re-fill their plates. That seldom happens.
I made the recipe exactly as posted, but did add some water chestnuts and red pepper flakes.
That little bit of heat made it a hit all around.
I will be making this often. Is easy to prepare and a healthy dish. Thanks for a real winner ! Donna

Update: 09/30/08 The recipe should read to mix the first 7 ingredients for sauce. Also I would suggest cutting back the stir fry time for the shrimp or they'll end up overdone and tough. I stir fry only long enough for them to change color and then out of the fry pan they come. This is still our favorite shrimp stir fry, I recommend it highly. WOW!! This was great! Just finished polishing it all off with a little bit left for my lunch tomorrow. Didn't change a thing and this is definitely a keeper for us. Thanks for posting it.

This recipe is excellent. I added brocolli to the bell pepper mix and used hot chili oil in substitute for the sesame, which I think its base is sesame oil anyhow. I also added fresh chopped cilantro when I added the shrimp, garlic and green onion back into the mix. Thank you.

Maybe I am missing it in your directions, but when are you supposed to add in the rice vinegar? I had to add a bit of honey, I found the sauce a bit too salty for my taste. Thanks.

I made this with a few modifications: I changed the veggies to broccoli, mushrooms and snap peas as my girls don't care for bell peppers....I also added some minced ginger. As I didn't have any sesame oil in the cupboard, I used olive oil (my bad, because it would have enhanced the flavour!!!) I have always found soy sauce on the salty side, so I usually dilute it with a bit of water! It is fast, easy and tasted great. I would recommend this recipe!
