Delicious. I didn't have any shrimp on hand so I used cut up chicken breast. Also I used a frozen oriental stir fry with mixed vegetables including bell peppers plus the broccoli. WOW. I might turn up the heat with more red pepper next time but will definitely be making again. Thanks for posting this recipe.

catsup, honey, cornstarch not allowed on phase 1 atkins, soy sauce must be checked for sugar content

sodium is too high, if you drop the ketchup and corn starch, it might drop the sodium number.
