Vibrant Southeast Asian seasonings are a natural with shrimp. Freeze any leftover coconut milk or refrigerate it for several days; you can use it instead of broth or water to cook rice or enrich a curry.

You shouldn't rate something

You shouldn't rate something as 2/5 stars just because your husband can't eat it... That brings down the average score. You should have actually prepared and eaten the dish before rating it.

Easy and Awesome!!

I used 2ls of 16-20 shrimp and left out the chiles. It was absolutely wonderful and so easy! Great flavors with the coconut milk, ginger brown sugar and lime juice.

P.S. forgot I decreased the lime juice to 2TB as other reviewers suggested...and I used 2 lbs of shrimp not 2ls :O

Very good

My husband made this for me tonight for my birthday. He hardly ever cooks but was able to Make this. It was absolutely delicious. It was all gone, no leftovers!


This really was fantastic. It made peeling/deveining 50 shrimp sooooo worth it. I'm having a hard time not eating every bit of it!

Good but needs some adjusting for my taste

I couldn't wait to make this recipe as the description and ingredients sound so amazing together. It was fun mincing all of that stuff and throwing it all together in the marinade. Then I noticed what a 1/4 cup of lime juice looks like and hesitantly threw it in - it looked like too much when throwing it into the rest of the bowl and my thoughts were correct when I actually tasted it when finished. Next time I will def try and lower the amount of lime juice as it was too sour (I also used fresh squeezed organic limes which may have added a little TOO much of the natural lime juice flavors?).

With the leftover coconut milk, I made this coconut brown rice recipe I found on gluten free girl which was absolutely delicious! Good recipe, will make the necessary modifications and try again!

Great ingredients, fun and easy to make
