As those of you who read my blog frequently know, my kids love shrimp and pasta. I know, right? Go figure! Not mac and cheese but big, juicy shrimp with pasta. So, I combined some “classic” Asian ingredients and came up with this wonderful flavor profile. Serve with angel hair pasta and everyone is happy!
