    Delicious! I made this dinner 3x in the past two weeks I enjoyed it so much. The flavors in this dish come together very nicely. I added a bit more cabbage and ommited the ginger. One of the best recipes I have tried so far!  -  15 May 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This was really good, however, I had to make some changes to fit my taste. I added seasme oil and soy sauce to the blender. I also heated up the sauce and then mixed it togethor with the grilled shrimp and noodles. Couldn't find rice noodles, so i settled for linguine. I also added red cabbage, carrots, and mushrooms. Sprinked with fresh green onions when done, and then I had a meal!  -  12 Aug 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We've made this twice now and have really enjoyed it. The second time was for company. I like more cabbage so we doubled the quantity. It even tasted good the next day cold right out of the fridge. If you like the "fresh" taste of mint and cilantro you will enjoy this recipe.  -  30 Jan 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
