      This is super tasty and really easy to make as well. I had some beautiful basil to use up and wanted something besides my norm of pesto and tomato type sauces. Yum. I used red chili paste and lime juice, but otherwise kept to the recipe. We also added a bit of veggie oyster sauce at the end. Next time I will add more chili paste because we like our food pretty spicy. Thanks for posting, I'll make this again for sure.
