Outstanding. Very quick and easy. The quick marinade for the shrimp along with the technique of cooking the veggies first keeps them tender and juicy, perfectly cooked. The sauce has just the right balance of mildly sweet, sour with just a hint of spice from the chili garlic sauce. Looks great on the plate and takes very little effort to prepare.
