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! :)

The whole family loved it, including the kids. Would increase the number of zucchini next time, as they "shrink" during cooking

Was a wonderful recipe. I didn't have the peanuts so used peanut butter instead and was excellent. Glendap

OMG!!! I wasn't feeling well, and made this as a side for a chicken satay recipe from my Thai cookbook... I added slivered red peppers and half a small onion slivered... Served myself a small portion, thinking either I might not like it, or my tummy might reject the food... Um... Yeah!!! I gobbled up 3/4 of the whole darn thing!!! (I let my husband have SOME...) LOVED IT!!!

Very very good. I made this to go with Thai Shrimp and what a perfect side. I followed the directions completely except for cutting in half for just two of us and topping with a little fresh mint and basil, which I had some left from the Thai Shrimp. Definately a keeper. Like others said this is a good and different way to fix zucchini. Made for Think Pink Cancer Awareness 2010. Thank you.

This was an awesome recipe. I had some left over Pad Thai from a restaurant, and wanted something to add so it didn't seem so much like leftovers. These were terrific.

Fabulous recipe. I make this often as a side dish for tom ka gai and thai green curry. Even my friends who travelled in Thailand don't complain that it's not traditional enough.
