You’ll need to pound the dressing in a mortar and pestle, but the flavors you’ll get are worth it. Fish sauce is strong and briny, so start with a few drops and season as you go. If you can’t find clear fish sauce, use half the amount of dark fish sauce and add sea salt to taste. If you don’t live near a grocer that stocks Asian ingredients, try Anzen Importers (503-233-5111), or The Spice Merchant (800-551-5999).

Fabulous! So tasty and easy!
Delicious! I used MUCH less chili pepper (one fresh jalapeno and a pinch of cayenne) and it still had quite a bit of bite.
