I made this for a small dinner party I was having and the only regret was ... I didnt make enough. My guests were looking for seconds. The only minor change I made was adding a little bit of coconut milk (2 Tbs) with the lime juice at the end. Highly recommended!!!

WONDERFUL!!! Fixed this last night for Think Pink Cancer Awareness 2010 and what a wonderful meal. I followed the directions using fresh basil and mint and I will be making this for DH and I again and putting this in my Favorites 2010. Served over jasmine rice and with Thai Zucchini#19012. Thank you for a great dish.

This is a wonderful recipe - I will make it again. The only alteration I made was that I doubled the recipe, but only used two jalepenos. It was still very hot. I thought it was perfect, but if I would have used four it would have been way too much.
