Ellie, I'm so sorry this one just didn't work out for us. There is so much fish sauce that it turned out to be way too salty and we are not sensitive to a lot of salt. The dipping sauce was ok, again pretty salty and it did not look good. I added a little lite soy sauce to it and it greatly improved the look.
