This is delicious! We made it for a Thai-themed potluck dinner, and it was a hit! We made it with creamy peanut butter, since we didn't have any chunky on hand. Also, we served it at room temp, as it was tough to time all the dishes to be hot at once. We will definitely make this one again, and highly recommend it.
This was a great recipe which we made as a side with #84075, Garlic Prawns, and Thai stir-fry noodles. I made two modifications to the sauce: halved the sugar and used red chili paste rather than red pepper flakes. I also made cashews toasted in ginger-soy sauce to sprinkle on top rather than peanuts. It was a delicious combination of nutty and sweet, and a beautiful presentation too.
