    delicious! I lvoe cilantro and thanks to my many PAC recipes, just happened to have some in the fridge and it was beautiful with these shrimp! I used tiger prawns that I de-shelled and my peanuts were salted, so I used a touch less soy sauce. Made for PAC Spring'11!

    I didn't add the peanuts in as my DS doesn't like them, but it was still a fabulous meal! I made mine following the recipe otherwise and I am guessing the scallops would be just as good as the shrimp!

    After seeing Ice Cool Kitty's picture and reading her review I had to go out and get some scallops and make this. Wonderful! Like Ice Cool Kitty I marinated the scallops for 2-2 1/2 hours. I did use a little of the marinade after browning them for a little more flavor and sauce. Served with tomato and cucumber and rice. Great for a hot summer dinner...will make again.

    This was very easy and came out delicious! I prepared the sauce and let it sit for a couple of hours and it wound up nicely spiced. I also subbed sea scallops which I marinated an hour or so. I discarded the marinade so they browned rather quickly; just had to watch they didn't burn. I garnished with the tomato and cucumber which were a nice, fresh complement and went well with the sauce. This recipe makes a lot of sauce. Use leftovers like a chimichurri over steak tomorrow!
