Helpful hints

  • For a lower protein meal decrease shrimp to 1 pound; increase to 2 pounds for higher protein.
  • Sriracha sauce is a hot chili sauce from Thailand. Add extra at the table if you like the dish spicy hot.  Dried, crushed red chili peppers may be substitiued for Sriracha sauce.
  • Cayenne pepper can be substituted for paprika if you like more heat.
