I love Thai food and this Spicy Thai Shrimp recipe is awesome! This is one recipe that I have made several times. If you like a bit more spice, increase the hot chili sauce to 2 tablespoons. I did this by accident and I loved it, but it was too spicy for Tim. He ate it but he kept saying WOW … this is spicy, my lips are burning! I don’t know, maybe he got more of the hotness in his serving … I loved it extra spicy, and aparently so did he because he ate it all! The blend of spices in the sauce just can’t be beat! Enjoy!
