This is the best recipe I've tried this year!! I was a little afraid because it featured some ingredients I'd never heard of, but I am so glad I overcame my fear and just took the plunge. Don't be afraid of the fish sauce, it is NOT that strong with all of the other ingredients. This is a perfect medley of mingling flavors. I cannot say enough about this spicy, rich recipe. I served it over rice to sop up all of the wonderful juice. Thank you so much for sharing!
