We really loved this meal. In fact we are having company for dinner and my husband asked if I could please make it again. I will say however we must be pigs! 2 of us ate the whole thing. And this time I will make more sauce because it was just enough to coat everything. We like more. Also I'm going to add Tilapia because its a fish that soaks up flavor. We also use Pad Thai noodles instead and it was a good choice**************** SECOND TIME out of this world! Made twice as much sauce and because it was Friday I used 2 veggie patties marinated in water and liquid smoke the dashed liquid smoke on the shrimp and patty mixture before broiling then the only other change was I added Tilapia by after removing shrimp I based with sauce and broiled and added it to the pot of complete ingredients. Oh and my 14 month old loved! The noodles and the Tilapia. Enjoy
Although our curry powder blend packs a particular punch, you can substitute 1 teaspoon spicy-hot Madras curry powder and omit the cumin, coriander, mustard, clove, and ground red pepper. We tested this recipe with Wai Wai brand noodles because we like the texture. They're thinner than most supermarket brands, which will work just fine, though you may need to soak them a minute longer.
