What was for dinner last night

I made this for dinner last night but I replaced chicken for the shrimp, it was excellent.

- Elizabeth Halfman from DAVENPORT, IA

loved the sauce

I had been looking for a simple peanut sause and this was it. I've used it as a salad dressing as well as a dip for chicken satay. Feel quilty I never got around to making the pad thai

It's right "at home" !!

This is a relatively easy dish to make and it tastes fantastic! Bring us more of these great, "at home" recipes! Thanks!!

- k kjellsteen from vermillion, SD

tastes just like its supposed to!

I made this according to the recipe, except doubled the sauce. I've tried making pad thai before and it never tastes as good as the restaurant. This recipe does!

GOOD & DIFFERENT

I ALWAYS READ THE REVIEWS, I FIND THEM VERY HELPFUL. THE PEANUT DIDN'T SEEM TO GO OVER VERY WELL, SO I LEFT IT OUT. GOOD FOR A CHANGE.
