I got this recipe off of Allrecipes.com but it's so quick, easy and tasty that I thought I'd share. I do use raw shrimp and cook them before hand adding the sauce mixture to the pan, I find it adds more flavor. I also double the sauce and serve with rice and asian medley veggies. Enjoy!

Ingredients

4 tablespoons water
2 tablespoons ketchup
1 tablespoon soy sauce
2 teaspoons cornstarch
1 teaspoon honey
1/2 teaspoon crushed red pepper
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1 tablespoon vegetable oil
1/4 cup sliced green onions
4 cloves garlic, minced
12 ounces cooked shrimp, tails removed
Directions

In a bowl, stir together water, ketchup, soy sauce, cornstarch, honey, crushed red pepper, and ground ginger. Set aside.
Heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in green onions and garlic; cook 30 seconds. Stir in shrimp, and toss to coat with oil. Stir in sauce. Cook and stir until sauce is bubbly and thickened.

This sounds pretty good. I bought some broccoli at the market this weekend to use in a dish like this. I think I know what's for dinner tonight.
