i made this (exactly as written) last night for my boyfriend, and we found it to be good, but nothing stellar. a few things: first, a lot of people commented here said they used curry powder instead of paste. personally i think this would lend the dish and entirely different taste since the two are made up of different things (curry powder often has a more 'indian flavor', whereas curry paste has more of a 'thai flavor.') i dont think they are interchangeable..that could just be me though. second, although im a fan of curry paste, dijon mustard, garlic, and soy sauce, i found that the shrimp tasted more like lemon than anything else in this dish, and like other users, i wished that they wouldve absorbed more of the flavor. the acids from the lemon juice started cooking the shrimp a little as well, so marinating longer wouldve been a bad idea. next time i wont add the lemon juice until right before cooking, and ill probably take it down to 1 tablespoon or less.
