This dish, full of Asian flavors, is best served with plenty of steamed jasmine rice and sautéed snap peas.
Look for fish sauce in the Asian section of your grocery store or at an Asian market.
Oh, come on!! Seriously! Everyone knows how bad fish sauce smells and, thus, it's only ever used in micro-quantities. But... like a trusting fool, I went with the recipe and MAN! does the whole house smell... kids are complaining... no one wants to even try this.
I've got no back-up dinner, People!
Definitely double the sauce! This was a pleasant surprise. I was worried about the amount of fish sauce, but it was perfect. I appreciate the previous posts about reducing the sugar to 1/3 cup (2/3 if doubling). Perfect balance of sweet and heat. This one is a keeper!
Very good. I also doubled the recipe sauce, but used less sugar
