What is the best method for cooking shrimp?

Quickly searing shrimp on higher heat gives them the best texture, juicy and tender.

  1. Thank you, Sylvia, for another wonderful recipe. Each one I have tried has been fabulous. You are a treasure!

  2. This is my favorite stir fry recipe, better than take out! I’ve made this one a few times. A change I made is to double the sauce except the cornstarch and add a couple tablespoons of water. That way there’s enough to coat the rice.

  3. I made this tonight for dinner. The only adjustment I made was I doubled the ingredients for the sauce. As my family like things saucy. It was out of this world. No leftovers tonight.

  4. Tasty and easy. I did not have the red onion or cornstarch. We both thought it was great anyway. Thanks.

  5. This was so delicious! My husband and toddler both loved it. It was quick to make on a weeknight. The orange juice complimented the dish perfectly.

  6. Just noticed the “cooking mode” feature! I haven’t tried it yet but it’s brilliant!!! Thank you!

  7. I prepared the Stir Fry Shrimp last night for dinner! It was delicious! Feasting at Home recipes never disappoint!!
    Thanks

  8. This dish was delicious! I halved the recipe as a “trial run” and my husband was disappointed that there wasn’t enough for a second bowl. Will definitely make again. Thank you!

  9. Winner! Comes together quickly once you prep.
    Did not have shrimp on hand. Used ~1 lb salmon filet cut into cubes and half of a large container of firm tofu, also cubed (crispy fried). With this amount of protein (and wanting more veg) I doubled the sauce. Next time I will add more red pepper flakes or some Asian-style red garlic sauce. Thank you for another tasty dish.

  10. I positively love, love, love your recipes. I have tried over a hundred of the ones that you send to my email and I have never been disappointed. I especially love the fact that you understand that many of us are vegans or vegetarians and you always give us options to make that recipe vegan or vegetarian.

      1. I echo what Donna says- love the options around the recipes/ and adaptations! Look forward to making this, this weekend!
