Toasting the spices in a sauté pan before grinding them makes them especially fragrant. And even a quick soak in a marinade of coconut milk, garlic ginger, and spices is enough to flavor the shrimp beautifully.

Had high hopes for this recipe. No matter the care, cooking the shrimp with the marinade makes it "mushy." Had to remove the shrimp from marinade, saute it and then add back the marinade and it still slightly scorched. Great flavor but too much anxiety over expensive prawns!
Fresh garlic and ginger flavor with aromatic spices. This is a great weeknight dinner, providing much reward for very little effort.
I followed this recipe exactly, having purchased fresh spices, toasted them and ground them fresh -- so that was not the reason for a rather tastless dish. 30 minutes in the fresh ginger containing marinade may have been too long as the ginger changed the texture of the shrimp. The shrimp were eaten but not really enjoyed.
Quick, easy, and tasty.
