I added 5 cloves of garlic and 3 crushed red peppers. Made for a very wonderful side dish with plenty of flavor. We will be making this many times.

Ann, this was outstanding. Took notice of the other comment, and cooked 2 (1 each) for Russell and I. I'm not a huge fan of zuccs but this won me over. I can also imagine the sauce on green beans (another veg I'm not fond of), lightly blanched brocolli, or asparagus. Next time, I will sub the broth for fish sauce.

The flavors in this dish go perfectly with the zucchini, with the peanuts accenting the zucchini very well. The taste of the ginger and garlic is very subtle and lent a classic Oriental touch. This dish was very delicious but seemed somewhat Westernized in taste, being mild. I think, however, it is a great accompaniment for other Thai dishes as it cools the palate and offers a divergant interest in a multi-dish Asian meal. Thanks, Annie for a very pleasant dish! :)
