Reviewed Spicy Coconut Shrimp with Spicy Mango Basil Salsa and Lime Jasmine Rice

May 29, 2012 in Food Network Community Toolbox on FoodNetwork.com

Could not be more delicious! A perfect summer meal. (The heat may depend on your jalapenos because I used just one and it was on fire.) The mango salsa should not be skipped, unless you simply dislike mango. It added a cool, juicy, sweet balance to the heat of the sauce and the heartiness of the shrimp. I found the rice to be a bit bland but pe"

Yes, perfect. After years of messing up the Tollhouse recipe and having no idea why (! cookies came out flat and greasy every time, no matter what I did differently) I tried this one. Finally found a chocolate chip recipe that works for me and I'm not letting it go."

I liked the potential of this recipe but using a third of a cup of vinegar for 5 tomatoes seemed like too much. I used less than half that amount and it was still overpowering. Hard to taste the tomatoes over the rice vinegar, in fact. Also, not sure why it called for an additional cup of water during the blending. My sauce was a very nice cons...

Delicious, hearty, fresh. My husband raved! Cooking time was much longer than Giada indicates in her recipe, however (maybe it depends on brand of farro?). The package I bought said to soak for 30 mins in water then cook; cooking time was an hour. Not a problem, but if time is a factor then you may want to do a practice run for this recipe. "
