    Manami's Note:

    Recipe by Eric Banh and Sophie Banh - Food & Wine Magazine - 01/2009, doubled and served with steamed Jasmine rice, this Vietnamese side dish becomes a great main course. :) Wine suggestions: Eric Banh’s suggestion: Washington State Riesling. F&W pick: Floral, citrusy 2005 Badger Mountain Update:07/11/2009 - it seems that by just placing salt in the recipe too much is used, this happened to a friend of mine and I was going to put in a warning. There are many items that can make it salty; so wait, until after you add the beans and the low-sodium chicken broth - that is a good time to add the salt!! You can always add more.:)

      this was super easy and very light and delicious. It was a little salty, so next time I will not salt the shrimp- just let the fish sauce do its thing!
