All things considered, I should have hated this dish. I can’t tolerate spicey food, and I hate shrimp. The fact that I tasted it with shrimp and liked it really says a lot. I made it myself with fried tofu and red peppers in addition to the green, and it was fantastic. The tien tsin peppers provide a flavorful hot that doesn’t build up and overwhelm everything else.
