From the Food section of the Kansas City Star. This is really good. The only sauce I could find at my grocery store was Thai garlic-chili sauce, which is really good. And I don't toast the almonds. sigh. I'm a lazy chef. This goes well with Thai Sweet-And-Sour Cucumber Salad, Thai Sweet-And-Sour Cucumber Salad.

Hubby said he wiould order this in a restaurant. I added some of the coconut to the sauce at the last minute. This will be a staple at our house. Made for ZWT4 Chic Chefs plus it was used for the Aussie recipe swap 15

Very good! I was looking for something to use up an open can of coconut milk and this worked out very well. I didn't have any chili sauce so used 1 T green chili paste and also added some skinny aspagaus to the shrimp. Easy and good!

I made this when we had my parents over for dinner and everyone loved it! Both the shrimp and the rice were perfect as directed!
