We all enjoyed this for our dinner tonight thanks Latchy. It was a simple recipe, like you said, that worked well. I used the whole bunch of coriander, as we love the stuff, but couldn't pinpoint what I thought was missing from the dish. Russell informed me it was a couple of tablespoons of fish sauce. That's what I'll add next time. Otherwiseit was very good.
