    I planned on making this recipe. However, three ingredients are missing from your nutrition information: cornstarch, soy sauce and peanut oil. When you add these ingredients, it adds 40.0 cal, 3.4 g fat, 251.5 mg sodium and 2.1 g carbs. This makes a HUGE difference to someone watching these things. - 4/19/12

    We really liked this. Make sure that you have everything ready to go before you start. Will definitely make this again when shrimp goes on sale. Go light on the red pepper. - 2/27/11

    Very good! Didn't use sesame seeds and ended up using flour in place of corn starch because I couldn't find mine, but still came out great! - 6/21/10

    Very Good
    This recipe is very good. I am not all that crazy about soy sauce but I really liked it. My husband, who does not like me cooking low cal meals, even enjoyed. - 11/5/09
