The color in this recipe makes the plate a delight and is ready quickly. I had one red & one yellow pepper on hand so used them.We enjoyed the garlicky, salty sauce. I also included the fish sauce, but was too faint of heart to add 1/2 tsp crushed pepper flakes and more hot sauce. I served scrachai at the table instead. Thank you for sharing the recipe!

My husband and I love it! Made a few changes. Use Wostershire Sauce instead of fish sauce.
