      Absolutely delicious. I basted the shrimp with some of the paste while cooking, after I marinaded them for 30 minutes first-had to wait for rice to cook :) 2 tips for ppl following, do what the recipe says, just chop the pepper - the bite is important and im glad i didnt double guess myself by deseeding it. Next time (and there will be a next time) I am going to add 1 tbs of chopped lemongrass to the paste as well. I think it will marry the heat to the nuts beautifully. terrific dish.

      Jewlies...we enjoyed this recipe on a warm summer evening out in the back yard. I was expecting the shrimp to have a bit more zing though (and I did use top of the line fresh spices). I would make these again, but add salt, maybe a bit more of something, maybe ginger? I liked the pistachio component. Overall an enjoyable recipe with great potential.
