    so nice to eat  -  21 Nov 2012


    This turned out pretty good, but I added a whole can of coconut milk (15 oz.) to make a nice sauce, doubled some of the other ingredients (honey, ginger), and mixed in a few different kinds of vegetables and put the shrimp in at the end so they didn't overcook. I served it over rice. It was delicious, and it made a lot!  -  02 Jun 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Yum, thanks to the other reviewers, we really enjoyed this dish. I think the thing that made it great was the addition of lite coconut milk. If that was in the original recipe, I would up it to 5 stars. I also decreased the red pepper flakes to 1/2 tsp. because of my kids and increased the honey to 4 tsp. I also added about 2 Tbsp. of low sodium soy sauce. I think this would be great with some nuts like toasted walnuts or cashews. I served this over angel hair pasta since we already had rice a lot this week, and it was delicious!  -  18 Apr 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
