Sounds tasty, but over half a day's sodium for 6 shrimp is too much for me. I might have to try the shrimp with the buffalo chicken sauce from the other recipe, though.

With a few changes because I didn't have the exact ingredients. Very good. Can use chicken also and its very good, I don't usually have Asian chile paste so I improvise with some regular paste with chili powder added. Whatever your taste i think its kinda versatile to you own prefere
