Stir-Fried Shrimp with Spicy Orange Sauce

Neutral-tasting canola oil allows the flavors of orange juice, honey, ginger, and chilies to shine. It can also withstand the heat of stir-frying in this tasty take on sweet-and-sour shrimp. Serve over rice or udon noodles.

  • My daughter in law is Chinese and she said this recipe was like what her Mother would make. We absolutely loved it! We had to find the chili paste with garlic at an Asian market. The idea of increasing the sauce ingredients sounds wonderful, will try that next time.

  • This is a really yummy dish, it smells amazing. If you are like me and like lots of sauce for your rice to soak up, you should increase the amount with more oj, vinegar, and soy sauce.
