To the milk and juice I added brown sugar. I used thai basil.And topped with crushed peanuts. This was very yummy.

I had much the same problems as lizeroo had in that the sauce did not thicken, even after some agressive boiling. I also think it needed more curry paste as the coconut milk came through more than did the red curry. I sauteed the shrimp with a tablespoon of chopped ginger and used coconut cream; not milk, and of course, cilantro. A good recipe, but needs some improvement.

this was really easy to follow, but i omitted the clam juice, and i added shallots instead of cilantro and it came out great!
