    This sounds so yummy that I can't wait to try this recipe. I thought the calorie count was a little high though. When I looked at the stats per item per serving, it listed 8 oz of shrimp at 224 calories. But it should only be 4 oz of shrimp, so I believe the calorie count will be 112 calories less. - 4/11/10

    Very good shrimp dish. We sprinkled red pepper flakes on top to give it an extra zip. Next time I might use some red pepper in it while cooking. - 6/24/08

    This was surprisingly good. To save on pots to be washed, I dropped the shrimp into the sauce without sauteeing them first, and the finished dish still had a good flavor and texture. - 12/5/10

    This is Scrumpdelicious! Fun and Easy to make! We did use cayenne pepper instead of chili pepper. And we used coriander seed, roasted them in a skillet a bit. We ate fresh pineapple & roasted coconut with it. YUM! - 4/20/08
