    good, but... to much peanut butter for me, next time I reduce by half, and I add a little more Coco milk

    My family thoroughly enjoyed this meal, I started out with less fish sauce and adjusted it to taste. Definitely will make this again!!!

    This dish is better than take away. Definitely one of the tastiest dishes I have ever made. The whole family loved it. I added a handful of green beans which went perfectly with it.

    Thoroughly enjoyed this curry. Fish sauce has such a unique flavour and i am glad i have now cooked with it. It will be something i will use in the future and really enjoy. Great to see the flavours come together. I did a quarter teaspoon of ground pepper as i felt it needed it. Certainly doesn't need any extra salt than what is in the recipe and the fish sauce comes with an abundance of this. Next time i would lightly pepper the Prawns before cooking. Ain't no Instagram filter gunna make it as yellow as it is in the picture though....

    Great meal, takes longer than the 30minutes it says, plan for an hour, just saying lol. This was delicious, other than subbing the ground ginger for minced ginger I didn’t change anything. Had mine with plain noodles as there was plenty of sauce to go around. Will make again for sure!

    Was absolutely delicious, I didn’t have bell peppers so I grated 1 zucchini and sautéed with onion garlic n celery and a bay leave, everything else was on point with the recipe. Love it, served over quinoa

    Delicious! I used fresh ginger, doubled the sauce ingredients, and omitted the salt during marinating. Even better with the lime garnish!

    I have a picky eater for a kid and he even enjoyed this dish. Must be the peanut butter!

    The picture looks deceiving. It looks like curry but it is only a sauce. Definitely did not come out yellow. Tasted okay but not what I thought it was going to be.

    So good! I used Serrano peppers instead of jalapeños.

    The dish is one of the best recipes had in a long time. The peanut sauce is light, but packed with flavor. My teens tried it and absolutely loved it. As the sauce thickens it makes it even better. Will make again for sure!

    This dish is amazing!!! I used no salt peanut butter and reduced fat coconut milk. I don’t like things too spicy so I opted to not use any jalapeño. This dish is best served over some noodles or rice.. •And if you have leftovers , I made the most amazing quesadilla! I cut the rest of the shrimp in half, added more fresh cilantro & green onions and put that between some flour tortillas. I used basil infused olive oil to cook the quesadilla was unbelievable! I will definitely be making this again!

    Tastes amazing but didn’t look as creamy or yellow as the picture. Very delicious though! Also added mussels to mine.
