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
A pretty good recipe. I normally love peanut sauces, but I thought this one was a touch too peanutty. I would definitely use 1/4 c less peanut butter next time. Also, directions seem to be incorrect. For sauce, it says to just blend peanut butter - sugar, but leaves out directions for the cilantro, ginger, and lime. I just tossed mine in with the rest of the sauce, and I thought it came out perfectly. I also used a bit of hot chile sesame oil to saute in, and it was incredible.
