Another great recipe from Thai Cooking and More. If you can't find dried hot red chile peppers, you can use this in substition - little different flavour but very good - substitute 1 can diced green chili's and 1 Tbsp hot chili paste - Sombel Oelek is my favourite Serve over or with rice NOTE - prep time includes 30 minutes of marinating time.
