Recipe by gailanng

Sweet, salty, tangy, aromatic, crunchy, hot and spicy. Don't leave off the garnishments; they add to the complexity of flavors.

I halved the recipe and used Thai sweet chili sauce for the paste. Delicious! Thanks! Next time, I may add a few veggies to make it a main dish. Made for Please Review My Recipe game.
