This recipe was posted on the box of rice noodles, and I'm posting here so I don't lose it. It's slightly modified for our taste.

This was delicious. I modified it as we are vegetarian. Shrimp became tofu and we used vegetarian fish sauce (available at SE Asian markets). Also, I used the peppers that are used in Vietnam ... small, red, cayenne peppers.
