Reviews for Let's Get Together Thai Shrimp
"i have made this dish for several dinners and for friends. it's one of the best dishes i've ever had"
"This is dish is amazing! I double it every time. I used chicken instead and that worked great!"
"This is a fabulous meal! I made it just for myself and had to FORCE myself to save half the meal for later....it was SO tasty."
"Very nice light flavor."
"Excellent! We thought it was really good. I served it with stir fried vegtables. Will triple it and make it for company next time and maybe add some edamame and serve it with potstickers and pad thai."
"We all loved this - even the kids!"
"I made this last night and we both LOVED it. Only change I made was added more Rajah (hot) curry powder since we like curry. (I heaped tsp. then added approx. 1/4 tsp. after that total). I used fresh ginger - grated.. all the flavors came together so nicely. Cilantro and cashews topped it off.. we will definately have this again and will be using for company!"
"Fantastic! LOVED it!"
"I've spent a lot of time in Thailand. This does not remotely taste like Thai. Poor flavor. We basically hated it."
"Would make again and again. I made with Salmon as husband is allergic to shellfish- Fantastic"
