This is my husband's favorite meal I prepare. He does not like carrots, or raisins, or shrimp... but for some reason he LOVES this dish! This dish is both sweet and spicy! It can be made to look like dinning a 5 star restaurant, or used for an everyday meal (used can pineapple instead). GREAT for entertaining, or for trying something new. Don't underestimate the rasins... both my husband and I hate rasins... but we LOVE this dish. I made it up on my own... sort of a copy cat from our favorite Thai restaurant. It is VERY colorful and VERY yummy!
