The dish looked beautiful in the picture. I could not find dried shrimp, so I used a very good quality Vietnamese fish sauce which was listed in the recipe as an alternative. Because we like spice, I used an extra garlic clove and added a diced jalepeno with the red bell pepper. Otherwise, I followed the menu. It smelled wonderful, but when I served it, my husband and I both kept adding more fish sauce and we also had to add hot sauce. Without them, it was just too bland for us. I won't bother to make this again, but if I did, I would substitue cilantro for the parseley and grind a lot more peanuts and either look for the dried shrimp or double the fish sauce from the 3 tbsp in the menu to 6.
Chicken XimXim with Ground Peanuts

In African dialect, ximxim means "stew." Using ground peanuts, shrimp and coconut in stews is distinctly African. Enjoy spooned over brown rice.

This is definitely a crowd pleaser - a great company dish!
It has tons of flavor and you can tailor it with your own twists.
One of our favorites!
My kids love this dish! They ask for it once a week! Its great, healthy and light. We serve it over rice.
The only changes I have made are to use red, yellow and green bell peppers, leave out the dried shrimp and fish sauce. Not only is it fragrant (in a non-fishy pleasant way) but it's super colorful!
This was totally awesome recipe! I've made it several time for small dinner party's......... everyone LOVED it! Thanks Eating Well!!!
