    Karen Elizabeth's Note:

    This recipe makes delicious use of the 'so good for you' sweet potato. Yams are a white version of sweet potato and can be used equally well. Try serving this with steamed rice, mixed with cooked peas ad sweetcorn. Taken from "Hot And Spicy Cooking": Colour Library

      Excellent dish! I made two servings and halved the recipe except for the spices, which was perfect for our taste. I think it might have been a bit bland had I halved the spices, too. But this way, it was delicious and right up our alley :) Thanks for posting!<br/>Made for ZWT 9 / Caribbean for The Apron String Travelers

      This was very good - made it for company. DH liked it a lot and so did I; company was so-so. I do think I'll add more seasoning next time, it was a little on the bland side. Loved the crunch of the cabbage and the coconut. I used more shrimp than called for b/c 120 grams didn't seem like enough for 4 people. Made for ZWT9 Soup a Stars
