This dish is best done at the last minute so the snap peas keep their crisp texture. The pink of the shrimp and the green peas make it as pretty as it is tasty. Source: EatingWell Magazine, May/June 2007

Needs more but good start Not a bad base. I wasn't expecting to like this at all since I'm not a fan of coconut-based foods that aren't desserts but the flavor was subtle enough that I did like it. Based on other reviews I added onion and garlic as well as some coriander and turmeric. I think an addition of basic parsley and some other vegetables would really knock this one out of the park. Will make again with some variations. Read More

Easy and flavorful I used Tangine spice instead of the madras curry powder. Used cornstarch along with the light coconut milk to thicken the sauce. Added seasoning salt at the end to taste. The curry wasn't overwhelming at all like some of the previous reviews said. It was an interesting flavor though. Served over qunioa and brown rice. Pros: Easy prep and cook time Read More

Delicious- but added onion and garlic! This was a delicious and satisfying dish. I started with a saute of onion and garlic (and some garlic scapes because they are in season) and used regular coconut milk. The lemon juice adds a surprising and tasty zip. Read More

Delicious- but added onion and garlic! This was delicious!! Simple and delicious and satisfying. Started with a saute of onion and garlic (and added a few garlic scapes since they are in season) and served it on a bed of basmati rice. Try it! The lemon juice adds a nice twist. Read More

This is truly a quick but very easy dish to make. We like it so much that for winter parties I just do the shrimp in the sauce take the shrimp out and chill. Add corn starch to the sauce and stir until thickened chill. Its a great change from the standard shrimp with cocktail sauce. My most asked for recipe. Read More

I used regular curry powder from the spice section of the grocery store I couldn't find "madras" curry powder. Also the lite coconut milk doesn't give nearly the flavor or thickness of regular coconut milk it may be worth the calories to just use regular coconut milk. Read More

My boyfriend and I really didn't like this recipe. While it was really easy to make we found it to taste sour. Maybe it's the qty of lemon juice? The sauce was also very thin. We ended up throwing it all out and getting take out. Very expensive evening. Read More
