I made it with shrimp the first time,and even though my husband and I thought it was very good, we agreed the dressing overpowered the shrimp. Now I serve it as a side dish along with grilled shrimp that has been marinaded in olive oil, minced garlic, orange peel and chopped fresh rosemary. Very nice combination of flavors.

We liked this but agree that the shrimp are wasted. I'd put in tofu next time for the protein hit without changing the flavor. This was better the day it was made (I served it slightly warm) than as leftovers. I'm planning to make this again, for an upcoming potluck at work.

Loved the flavor and spice! I omitted the shrimp to use this as a side dish with CL Thai Shrimp Cakes. As a side, we felt this made about 6-8 servings depending on your portion size. My personal preference is to use about 1 T of chopped peanuts per serving instead of 2 T total. We will definitely make this again!
