Top Review by JennyMJ

This is terrific! I wanted something with shrimp and cilantro, so decided on this recipe. I didn't have Thai peppers (used cayenne red pepper flakes), fresh ginger (used powdered...far inferior to fresh, I know), or soba noodles (used linguini). Even with these ingredients, the whole fam loved it, including kids. I will definitely make this again, and have fresh ginger, peppers, and Japanese noodles on hand. I'm glad to finally post a review for this recipe. It deserves a 5-star!
