I used tofu instead of shrimp. I've been looking for this recipe for ages, as this is our favorite dish to get in Thai restaurants. It's quite yummy.

This recipe is missing the main ingredient... Shrimp. I think it would be good with snow peas added. Also, with the Basil leaves left whole. I had this in a restaurant and it was delicious. I will try making it this summer when I have fresh basil. :)
