    Great! Will definitely be making again. 10/10. I added some cayenne pepper and it was brilliant✨😊

    Very delicious. I added some sour cream for some extra creaminess.

    My 12 year old daughter made this and it turned out great! She added her own touches on the seasoning though. Will make again!

    Husband loved it so that is a win for me! followed the recipe and it turned out awesome! Next time I might cut back on the lemon juice, but that is just my preference. Over all a great recipe!

    Not our flavors! Definitely would not make again Weirdly sweet but spicy? Like without coconut milk it might be better?

    Delicious. I cooked as the recipe says except I seasoned the shrimp with some cajun seasoning. Will definitely make again!

    It was good, not as great as some people reviewed. I had to add lots of pepper and more salt. I also added more coconut milk. I think next time will add chicken or sausage. Still tasty and made a lot

    Won’t add rice the next time. I added tomatoe paste to make it thicker and more fulfilling. I also added green onions because I love onions. Will be making again. It was DELICIOUS

    Loved it! It came out perfect! I added zucchini, shredded carrots, okra, and a little more rice to mines! The cilantro and lemon juice gave it a bomb flavor!

    So easy to make and so ridiculously flavorful. I've made this three times now and will continue making it regularly. Makes dinner so simple and delicious!

    This soup is wonderfully easy and absolutely delicious!!! I followed the recipe EXACTLY and my husband and I LOVED it! Its always funny to me when people will review a recipe they made changes to and then give it less than 5 stars. You aren't reviewing THIS recipe, you are reviewing your own. Just amusing to me.

    Quick and easy recipe to follow. I added spicy sausage and more salt than the recipe asked for. I felt like the lemon threw the recipe off a bit. I think it’s better without adding the lemon juice, but that’s just my opinion. Nothing really special about the recipe. It did the job for dinner.

    Seriously Delicious. I added the whole can of coconut milk as suggested by others. The coconut taste is not over powering. Along with the shrimp, I also added chunks of mahi mahi, a little lobster, and a bit of frozen veggies. Next time i would double the recipie. Seriously loved it. Make sure you season to taste.
