Recipe Comments & Reviews

This recipe hit the spot. Great combination and layering of flavors. I did not add the final 3 tablespoons of butter - just served along with "sticky rice".
This is a fun, classy recipe that is relatively easy to prepare. I think the key is finding the freshest ingredients. No heavy sauce to cover bad shrimp. So go with the good stuff.
