this is just wonderful and so easy to throw together! i followed your recipe exactly except for the carrots which i omitted but i used snow peas, slivered instead. very tasty, thanks sue
Very tasty Sue. Thank you.
This was VERY yummy and quite easy to do! I took the dish to a Thai cooking night at a friends house and it went very fast! Only thing I changed was I didn't have the dried shrimp as I couldn't get my hands on any. And, I added more cilantro as I think it is delicious!
