      Pretty tasty! It wasn't as spicy as I thought it would be, but I only used 1 of the serrano chilies. Next time, I will use both. Also, I left out the scallions (must have overlooked that item when I made out the grocery list). I served this with Mango Infused Jasmine Rice #119597, so as not to let any of the coconut milk go to waste.
