Bataboom batabay!!! This is what DH had to say!!! I stir fried the leek and then added all the ingredients as per the recipe. I substituted soy and wocestershire sauce for the fish sauce (1/2 tblsp each) and added fresh red plump chillies (we are getting them now, they are sweet and pungent) Oooooooof!!! DH was lovin' it and so was moi!!!! I seeved it over noodles and took a bow on your behalf :) Fay
excellent dish! quick, easy and delicious main course which i served with jasmati rice. the only thing i changed was that i stir fried the leek, i love them, then added the shrimp, etc. this is a keeper!
I was really suprised at the depth of flavor from such few ingredients! Followed the recipe exactly but sprinkled on a little salt at the end. Mental note to self....start cooking with leeks more often :) Thanks Latchy!
