I enjoyed it its really good with a spinach and asparagus mix. You have white rice on the place then pour the thai shrimp paste over that rice bed with a little of the juices its awesome. Read More

I didn't have rice vermicelli so I used spaghetti added some additional veggies and garnished with black sesame seeds. The recipe author doesn't give you a recipe for a Thai peanut sauce so just be sure you use a good one; there are a number of good peanut sauces on this site. That sauce on its own will make or break this dish for you. And if the peanut sauce isn't "spicy enough " add some red pepper flakes. We enjoyed it as a cold salad chilled for 2 hours. Read More

I thought this dish isn't reaching its potential. I have prepared this twice once as written and once with it tweaked. The recipe when prepared exactly as written is bland and lacks true Asian flavor. I added 2T of kosher salt and doubled the amount of scallion. The shrimp is best marinated before cooking in a simple mix of soy sauce and sesame oil. It must also be noted that pre-bought peanut sauce is disgusting. There is a good recipe here on allrecipes.com that is delicious. Read More

We made this as a hot dish using spaghetti instead of vermicelli. The changes we made were to cook the spaghetti. About 1/2 way through cooking the spaghetti added the raw shelled deveined shrimp to the water to cook. Heated the Thai Peanut Sauce in the microwave for about 1 minute. Once the spaghetti and shrimp were cooked, drained the spaghetti and shrimp and added the scallions, warmed peanut sauce, and tomatoes to the shrimp and spaghetti. We mixed everything and served.
