  1. Fabulous recipe!

  2. Miss T - Excellent, glad you liked it!

  3. excellent recipe. I added mandarin oranges to it, a little too early though they separated and pretty much just thickened the sauce.

  4. Bruce - I'm excited to hear that you gave this recipe a shot! It was one of Jeff's favorite shrimp dishes!

  5. I really want to try this recipe out but I can't for the life of me find the sambal oelek. Is there anything I can use as a substitute for it?

  6. Melanie - Sambal is really just a chile paste with a bit of vinegar and salt. Try using a touch of hot pepper sauce, harissa or thelike.

  7. I did actually end up finding it. Just made the recipe and it's delicious! Whole family loved it :)
