This dish took a lot longer than 25 minutes. Try 1 hr + after everything was prepped, chopped etc. I cook all the time and am pretty skilled, but 25 min? Only if you have helper.
Had this for lunch today - pretty good! The only thing I changed was I used oyster sauce instead of fish sauce, so it was sweeter rather than salty.
My family loved the Thai flavors in this dish. Our grocery store was out of fresh lemongrass and the produce guy recommended lemongrass in a tube-Gourmet Garden. I squeezed in about 1 1/2 tsps into the dish when I added the coconut milk,shrimp mixture. Delicious!
I don't know why one reviewer said this had no flavor. Ginger and lemongrass are full of flavor! This was good and had a nice light spicy taste, my 5 year old really liked it. It was a nice sweet and spicy, creamy. A little like pad thai, but slightly different flavors. I will definitely make again.
Easy recipe, and good traditional Thai flavor. I probably did a little extra ginger/lemongrass, and it sat for a while on the stove while I cooked up some okra to go on the side so it had a bit of time to steep. The mint/basil are a good complement to the curry flavor, definitely a keeper. Need to remember to heat the noodles back up a bit before serving next time.
I normally love my cooking light recipes but this was a huge disappointment. There is NO taste to this dish! I followed the recipe but it was very bland. We ended up throwing the whole thing away and going out for dinner:(
