"Great flavors. I did use the cashews instead of crispy rice noodles. I agree with other reviewers that this took way too long to make. Prep was closer to an hour for me, so I doubt I'll be making it again."

"This is one of the best meals I have ever had. All the spices and flavors combined to make a gourmet dish. Second time around, I omitted the shrimp and added extra garlic. This would be just as tasty with chicken instead of shrimp. I used twice the broth both times because we like it juicy! Thank you so much to the gentleman who submitted this recipe - we'll be having it often."
