"We really like the spicy flavor of this seafood dish," notes Collette Conlan of Burleson, Texas. "You can give it even more zip by increasing the amount of hot pepper sauce. If your family doesn't like the taste of curry, try substituting paprika instead."

"Oh! I am SO happy I found this recipe. I had this delicious shrimp dish in Kauai, and I have been wanting to replicate it. This recipe was perfect! Instead of cream, I used whole milk and coconut milk. I also added some lime juice, Sriracha chili sauce, and sweet chili sauce. I served it over white/brown rice mix with a cabbage cole slaw and it was AMAZING!"

"My husband and I liked this recipe. I actually used already cooked shrimp but it turned out great. I would probably double the liquid part since we like sauce on our noodles and it didn't make enough for leftovers."
