This is so delicious. I must say though, that I was shocked to see canola oil included in the recipe. I thought that most people have switched to something more healthy, like grapeseed oil. Canola oil is genetically modified, and very bad for us.

Fresh and light. So easy to make too! The shrimp and cabbage is perfect for a warm summer evening. Followed the suggestion of a previous reviewer by using two metal skewers instead of bamboo skewers. Worked beautifully! Thanks JerseyCook. Would definitely make again!

Fantastic recipe: made it this weekend and it was a hit at my dinner party. SO simple, yet very flavorful, very fresh and light. I added some lime juice to the cilantro sauce, and 20 minutes later, all the shrimp were gone.

I have been making this recipe for years now. It is easy and delicious. My family loves it. I even make larger batches to take to summer parties and cookouts. It is always one of the first dishes to go! And I've been asked to share the recipe over and over.

This was in Everyday Food; I made it a couple of weeks ago. Its a great hot weather meal because its light. I would recommend using two metal skewers as opposed to a single bamboo one. The bamboo is difficult to turn with just one, tends to splinter, and burns easily, even with soaking first. This got my family's seal of approval - they just asked me to make it again, and they rarely ask for repeats.
