Don't be put off by the long list of ingredients, this is truly delicious and well worth it. Didn't do it for a special occassion, but it would work well for a dinner party or bbq. Family loved it, thank you!-18 Mar 2012

I made the shrimp in the marinade as written but decided I didn't want to use the sauce just for dipping so I added 2 tablespoons of coconut milk to it and served it over rice noodles instead. This was just an outstanding meal, thank you for posting it.-03 Jun 2010

Yum! I followed the recipe exactly, except for leaving the prawns in the marinade for about an hour and a half (unexpected store run). Excellent! I'm thrilled that I have leftover vinaigrette for steak salad this week. Thanks!!-08 Jun 2008
