Pretty good. Not really very spicy, overall quite bland at first taste. I added some fish sauce, used 50% more coriander (fresh ground from seed), doubled or tripled the red pepper, and included a bit of red wine vinegar. That plus the fresh lime juice squeezed on at the table made it acceptably tasty. But I wouldn't call it spicy.

This really is easy to make and so delicious. I loved the meld of flavors, and plan to try it with chicken one of these days soon. This is a keeper!

This was pretty tasty! My husband found it a little spicy, but he's kind of a wimp. I thought the spice was just right, and the smoothness of the coconut milk levels it out. I omitted the water and still had plenty of sauce. This was my first time using fresh ginger, and I was surprised by the amount of heat! Thanks for sharing!

I used virgin coconut oil, diced canned tomatoes with jalapeno peppers and 1/2 teaspoon of cayenne pepper. I'm looking forward to trying this recipe using chicken for the shrimp for a less expensive weeknight dinner. Thanks for posting, MizzNezz!

so, okay I did change this a little bit. I doubled the garlic and ginger although it seams like i always double the garlic with everything, ran out of onions so none of those I'll use them next time of course, had no canned tomatoes so used fresh but no seeds, and then thickened up the sauce a bit with some corn starch. fear not the coriander :) great recipe

This was good, but definitely missing something. I had hoped it would taste like yellow curry, but it wasn't quite there. I added a bunch more cayenne, and omitted the water. I also had to add more salt at the table (and I am not even a fan of salty foods). Good, but lacking that special something.

I am always on the lookout for good shrimp recipes, and had high hopes for this. Unfortunately, we found it to be just okay - rather bland. I can't put my finger on what is missing, perhaps just more of the spices, but it was not a hit with us.

I added more cayenne because some of the reviews said it wasnt spicy at all. Other than that it was fine, it just didnt have a lot of flavor. I was a bit disappointed, my date thought it was fine.

Sorry, it's sort of OK. I was expecting 'spicy'. This certainly isn't spicy. It's OK, but not great.
