I've adapted this from several other recipes. I served this at a Thai-themed dinner and everyone loved it. Serve this with rice and a vegetable curry. It is delicious!

I agree with C in PA on the instructions error--but this will teach me to read a recipe thoroughly before I get started. The sauce needed a little something extra, but still, pretty tasty
