    Put it out as hors d'ourvres before a dinner party. They were gone in 5 minutes. Everyone wanted the recipe!  -  05 Aug 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    We had this at a local Thai restaurant and loved it. I've ordered the Japanese salt which also is a tremendous flavor. With this recipe kicked up, we can eat it at home. Don't have a wok but love my grill pan!  -  22 Jul 2018  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
