This recipe must have tempted me a lot, because I rarely go to the trouble of peeling and de-seeding tomatoes. But I'm glad I did for this -- great flavours, beautiful colours and so easy to make. I doubled the cilantro because I love it so much. There was a lot of liquid, so 3 tablespoons of fish sauce might be enough in future. Served with steamed rice, Recipe #440588 and steamed green beans. We sure ate well tonight. Thanks for posting.
