Excellent dish! I didn't have cornstarch so I substituted flour for the thickening agent. I used 3T (I was lead to believe I needed to double the amount) but the sauce thickened up too much. Next time I'll start with 1T of flour and see how it goes. Great recipe. My husband enjoyed enjoyed it as well!

Very nice dish. The "2/3 oz cornstarch" ingredient threw me. That seems to be about 1 1/2 Tbsp. Really need these ingredients that FS gives us fixed. We need to include the ingredients as part of the recipe description so we know what the heck they are. Over-all I really enjoyed. Did add extra shrimp though add it was wonderful.
