I concur with chia's evaluation in every respect. Outstanding flavor, very quick and effortless. Dh wanted to be sure I gave this recipe 5 stars. Not a problem, it deserves 10. I sauteed the shrimp in garlic and skipped the mint. Yum. Very yum.

if you want a quick light meal with big bold flavor in a hurry then this is the recipe for you! from start to finish this takes less than 15 minutes, but wow, what taste! i only used whole thai bird chiles and fresh mint from my garden, i hope the photo does it justice.
