Stir-fried Shrimp with Spicy Orange Sauce

Ready in 40 minutes

This is shown over Somen noodles - but we found that we liked it better over white rice. Adapted from a recipe in Cooking Light.

"This is the first thing I've ever cooked that wasn't eggs or spaghetti. It was amazing!!! Easy to follow and great practice for preparing fresh ingredients. I will definitely make this again soon. Thanks!!"
