I am not sure what to say about this dish. It was good. It was easy to put together. Mr. J and I like hot and spicy food. Food that is so hot that our eyes start to water and our mouths go a bit numb. Now that is a good time.
We have been super busy lately. I know y'all can relate. I am a big planner but lately even my planning methods seem to be failing. I have been traveling; Mr. J has been traveling. Of course, it is never at the same time. Trying to figure out meals and groceries has been difficult. Expiration dates become extremely important.
There have been some misses. And it kills me a bit to say that I have had to throw away full bags of food. Not too many, but for me one is too much.
This meal was put together in about 15 minutes total. I used a bag of frozen shrimp, shredded carrots, and mixed broccoli slaw. Besides mincing some garlic and mixing the sauce up you just have to wait for everything to cook and that isn't even that long.
We ate it hot the first night and then I had two servings leftover that I ate as a cold noodle salad. Both tasted great. I amped up the hotness of this recipe but if you like to be able to feel you lips after the meal you can certainly cut back.
