Wow! This is the first Thai recipe I've ever tried. It has a rather pungent fragrance, but is very light and refreshing. I made it exactly as written except I used regular fish sauce because I couldn't find less-sodium version even in the Asian market. It came out fine! Very nice combo of flavors and textures. We'll be eating this again! Thanks, Chef Romie. Made for Pick A Chef Spring 2008.
