    This was delicious!! I also used fresh ginger, and served it over jasmine rice that I boiled with more fresh ginger & some lemongrass. The flavor was subtle, but complemented the orange shrimp perfectly. - 6/6/09

  • This was pretty good and easy to make. I didn't need to add the full amount of cornstarch, but I did add extra oj. By the time the veggies cooked much of the sauce had evaporated. I used fresh ginger (1/4 tsp) and added red pepper flakes for spice. - 2/3/09
