red pepper flakes
yellow onion, chopped
medium shrimp - peeled and deveined
salt and pepper to taste
This turned out pretty good, but I added a whole can of coconut milk (15 oz.) to make a nice sauce, doubled some of the other ingredients (honey, ginger), and mixed in a few different kinds of vegetables and put the shrimp in at the end so they didn't overcook. I served it over rice. It was delicious, and it made a lot!
I agree with others, the 1 Tablespoon of red pepper flakes has to be a mistake...why would you have honey ginger shrimp where the honey is only 1 teaspoon and a ton of red pepper flakes? I used about 1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes and about 1 1/2 tablespoon of honey. The flavor was good, but I think I may try some of the other reviewers suggestions and use some coconut milk.
Yum, thanks to the other reviewers, we really enjoyed this dish. I think the thing that made it great was the addition of lite coconut milk. If that was in the original recipe, I would up it to 5 stars. I also decreased the red pepper flakes to 1/2 tsp. because of my kids and increased the honey to 4 tsp. I also added about 2 Tbsp. of low sodium soy sauce. I think this would be great with some nuts like toasted walnuts or cashews. I served this over angel hair pasta since we already had rice a lot this week, and it was delicious!
this is quite good but needs some tweaking ... I marinated the shrimp in the sauce ingredients before cooking it in the same sauce ... I've also tried it with a little orange juice added, to give it a little more flavour ... I serve it with steamed broccoli and a rice pilaf for a quick healthy meal.
Ok, here's how to take a good recipe and make it great (using recommendations from other reviewers and my own) - follow recipe as written except cut back on the red pepper flakes (way too hot to enjoy if not). Before adding shrimp dredge in flour, saute with other ingredients a minute or two, then add 200 ml lite coconut milk, simmer until thickened and pour over warm pasta!! Fantastic "Thai" like meal - even the kids loved it!
I thought this dish was AWESOME. I increased the amounts because I had more shrimp to cook. I also added a 1/2 cup of chicken broth at the end to make more of a sauce and served over rice. It was spicey so I would cut back red pepper flakes if you have those that don't like spicey. My husband loved it and he loves spicey food!
This was quick and easy and would have been fantastic but I hadn't expected the dish to be so lip-burning hot. I'll definitely make this again but use much less red pepper. I served this over a bed of store-bought butter & garlic pasta and it was almost restaurant quality.
Loved it-would add coconut milk and chicken broth next time but very good.
