Reviews for Thai Shrimp Linguine
"I have made this a few times now, but after following the recipe exactly the first time, I now add a sliced onion, and a some chopped garlic. I also agree that shoestring carrots work better, as well as cooking the snow peas with the cooking veggies. In a variation, I add a couple tablespoons of sweet chili sauce to the mix. A really good meal any way you make it though."
"I loved this recipe! I was a little nervous to use the peanut sauce. As another reviewer mentioned, I was afraid it may be too spicy. I used a mild peanut sauce and it had just a hint of spice. Very flavorful, but definitely not too hot. I chose not to boil the snow peas, since others mentioned they were mushy when boiled. I added the snow peas to the skillet with the carrots, mushrooms, and shrimp and they were cooked perfectly. I will definitely be making this tasty recipe again!"
"we really liked the flavor. didn't use carrots, snow peas got mushy. we are going to add more shrimp and mushrooms next time. want to try with chicken and mushrooms too."
"quick and easy and very tastely. I used matchstick carrots as I thought the shredded carrots were a little too mushy. Have already made several times."
"This was delicious. It's a fast, wonderful meal to pull together in a hurry for my friends who love Thai. Great!"
"Squeeze of Lime at end"
