Recipe by Jostlori

Su-Mei Yu is chef/owner of my favorite Thai restaurant in my hometown of San Diego. Her cookbook, Cracking the Coconut, is one of the few I packed when I moved to Costa RIca. This dish is a great blend of flavors, you can adjust the chilies to your taste. Enjoy!

A quick and easy dish for a last minute dinner. Some of the family liked the shrimp and some just the pork. I used a heavy hand with red pepper chili flakes instead of the pepper. I loved the sweet and spicy flavors of the dish. Made for ZWT9 for the Gourmet Goddesses July 2013.
