Very flavorful! Makes for a great presentation with all of the colors from the fresh ingredients. Next time I make it I will probably reduce the amount of cashews. Thanks MizzNezz!

I took John2002's advice and added some red chilis to it. Wonderfulness! Served it with fried rice.

A really simple recipe for an elegant dish! I think the pinch of salt is unnecessary as the soy sauce adequately flavors the dish. To make it closer to the Vietnamese origin, I would consider adding a few (few!) roasted chili peppers and a little sugar. The red peppers and green peas give great contrast to the dark thick sauce and light color of the shrimp. A really good dish for dinner with friends because of the quick prep time and easy serve.
