really easy to make, with great taste. these can also be baked for those who have fear of frying. the sauce is easily whipped up in a blender or processor, and the results...well, you tell me :)

These smelled delicious, the seasoning was perfect but after the first bite i bit into a piece of shrimp that had clearly gone bad so i am giving the 5 stars based on one small bite since its not the recipes fault i couldn't eat more...i was so mad at the shrimp :D The sauce tho was amazing! my papaya wasn't completely ripe so i added a little fresh mango to it as well. Hint for leftover sauce! serve over ice cream, its delicious i actually used both basil and cilantro since i had a small amount only of each, . THis ZWT5 i have used more hot chile peppers than any month before and love it!
