Teriyaki Shrimp 'n Slaw Stir-Fry

Per Serving (1/3 of recipe, about 1 1/3 cups): 5 points+ - 210 calories, 2g fat, 884mg sodium, 21g carbs, 4.25g fiber, 7.5g sugars, 26.5g protein.

The recipe: "Hungry Girl 1-2-3", page 268

This recipe was pretty tasty, but I probably won't be making it again.  It tasted like a pretty good teriyaki stir-fry, but with more effort than I think is necessary.  It would be much easier, and not many more points (maybe 1 more points+) to just use a bottled teriyaki sauce that has low calories and fat.  This recipe called for making your own sauce and adding it to the stir-fried broccoli slaw and shrimp. 

It was nice in theory to have fresh teriyaki sauce, but the flavoring was not much better than a bottled sauce.  My husband, who is not a fan of stir-fries in general, did not like it much and ended up making something else for dinner.  I thought it was fine, but I will just make my shrimp stir-fry with a bunch of veggies and a bottled sauce next time.  I feel as though I could get a larger serving size than what was in this recipe for about the same points that way.
