What wonderful combination of flavors...I normally don't care for nuts on my food...but I made an exception for this dish and really enjoyed it...this is easy and quick to prepare...it has just a touch of heat...there isn't any one ingredient that dominates the dish...each stands alone so you really get to enjoy each flavor...I did think that there was too much coconut and peanuts so next time I'll cut back on those...I had plenty left over but that could be because this only served two of us...we're pigs...I served it with Butter Lime Cilantro Rice and steamed broccoli...it's a keeper...thanks for posting it...=)
