"As others have said, the flavor combination was odd. I know Thai food use peanuts or peanut butter in some dishes but the addition of honey and OJ.... the OJ really stood out. I won't make this again :("

"This is one of my favorite meals. Every time I've cooked it (usually for 20 people or more) I get rave reviews. Instead of the microwave I just put the the sauce in a saucepan on the stove and just heat it until it's warm as not to lose any of the spice of the salsa."

"Don't worry about the ingredients list - it seems like a strange combination but is totally tasty. I thought this recipe was super yummy. It's very easy to make, especially with the sauce being made in the microwave. My husband loved it too. Will definitely make again!"

"The combination of ingredients in the sauce was odd and, as a previous reviewed also said, unappealing. It had a peculiar smell that put me off. I doused it in red pepper flakes to add some heat. Would not make this again."

"I do like Thai food, so I decided to try this one, even though the combination of ingrediants sounded strange and unappealing. It turns out that they were unappealing. The ingrediants did not compliment each other. My wife tried this one before she knew what was in it and she said it was awful. (in a nice way). Recommendation: don't try this one."
