I haven't tried this yet but intend to because in addition to all the other categories it falls into it also appears to be gluten free. I was so surprised to see rice flour listed as an ingredient. Is is possible for you to start including gluten free receipes or substitutes once in a while? Pat in OKC
I was skeptical about this combination of shrimp over slaw over rice noodles but this recipe was exceptionally tasteful resembling Vietnamese food which we have a lot of in Oklahoma City. Just for kicks am going to try with rice next time. Pat again in OKC.
I love the fattening deep-fried version of salt and pepper shrimp you find at Chinese restaurants and this version delivered a lot of the same great flavor. The first time I mixed up the rice flour dredge though it smelled WAY too strong so I cut the amount of 5-spice powder down significantly -- only used about an 1/8 tsp and it was just enough. If you really love 5-spice go for it but if you don't you may want to add a little less. I added some scallions to the pan with the jalapenos because that's how they do it at my favorite restaurant and they were really good. The slaw was really tasty too!
No Cornstarch!!! Because I didn't have any rice flour on hand I used cornstarch as a substitute and followed the recipe exactly. The cornstarch got too sticky and ended up not coating my shrimp very well but coated the bottom of my pan!!!! I tried it a second time the next night with Rice Flour and it turned out perfectly. My advice: DON'T USE CORNSTARCH!!!!!
so sooo good This recipe is overloaded with healthy food! and we exchanged the cabbage for baby bok choy from our garden and didnt put any 5 spice except for a dash of cinnamon. its awesome with the brown rice!!! Pros: HEALTHY Cons: NONE
