      This was a hit! I used fresh string beans and zuchini, added some crushed red pepper (couldn't find the Thai chilies), served with white rice. Thanks for another great recipe Sue :-)

      Excellent recipe. Wasn't too hard to time consuming to prepare (though having all the ingredients on hand might be a little bit of a challange.) I would suggest at least doubling the ingrediants for the sauce though, as I did not have enough to adaquetly coat the rice.

      ABSOLUTELY WONDERFUL!!!! I used 1 1/2 lb. med. shrimp, 1 bag of frozen stir-fry veggies, and added some extra broccoli, water chestnuts, and onion. I doubled the sauce because I had more veggies and shrimp than called for and skipped the heat. Took leftovers to work today, and the girls at work were drooling over the smell...but, I couldn't spare to offer them any/LOL (just too good to let go of). Definitely restaurant-quality, and perfect for a Asian-themed dinner party. This dish turned out so beautiful that I actually took a picture of the finished dish!! THANKS SO MUCH!!! ~Manda
