This should have more reviews because it's really tasty. I used 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes and 1.5 lbs shrimp. It came out pretty spicy but I'm not complainin'. The sauce is delicious and full of flavor but before I added the shrimp I coated lightly with salt, pepper, and ground coriander for seasoning. I also added a touch more water to the sauce to stretch it out a bit and served over basmati rice. It was very good - thank you.
Tasty & easy, with a light, fresh flavour! I used one tablespoon of light vegetable oil, an extra chilli and added a splash of soy sauce to the Thai rice I served it with. The more we ate, the more we enjoyed it. I think the addition of vegetables, or even just serving a vegetable dish on the side would enhance the flavour.
Oh dear!!! It was really nice dish!!! I didn't have lime juice on hand so I used lemon juice instead, but still worked really well!!! and it was super easy and simple to make yet, so delisious!! Thanks for posting such a beautiful Recipe Chia!!!! :)
