Quick and Easy Szechwan Style Shrimp

Quick and Easy Szechwan Style Shrimp is a spicy shrimp recipe that really is quick and easy. It’s perfect for company fare.

 

However, it might not be a good recipe for small children or anyone with a tongue that can’t handle the heat.

You can tone down the heat just by adjusting the amount of crushed red pepper you use. For my tastes, however, it’s perfect just like it is.

The sauce makes this recipe. I feel it would probably be just as good with chicken tenders or maybe even some other type of meat. It can also be made in advance.

It’s so good that you might want to consider doubling the sauce ingredients just to have some in the fridge!
