Adapted from Simply THAI Cooking. A quick weeknight favorite. Served with rice, makes a complete meal. You can sub sliced chicken for the shrimp if desired. (edit 4/27 to clarify pepper type)

This was so good and very easy. I didn't add the green beans because my family don't like them. I found that it needed, salt, a bit of garlic, so I added some. thank you for posting, in all a good recipe.
