      Perfect! This may well be the best tasting asparagus I ever ate! It had a fantastic flavor, truly Thai, with the right amount of heat and pungency. The basil, as could be expected, was great. I steamed my asparagus for 10 minutes before stir-frying and everything came out wonderful. I chose to use sambal oelek in lieu of the minced serranos (although I did garnish with Thai dragon chilies). Thanks so much! I will make this often!

      Who knew basil would be so delicious with asparagus! This dish was even better than restaurant dishes. I followed the recipe closely, using fish sauce and the dark soy. Guests did find the dish salty, but mostly loved it anyway. As written, this recipe will give sharp bursts of very hot heat. The next time I make it, for personal preference, I will mince all the peppers up instead of using them as a garnish. Here is a tip - if you want more control over the heat, you can remove some of the inside ribs, core and seeds from the peppers, chop them up, and simply add more until it is hot enough, as that is where most of the heat resides. Another tip - if you have access to an Asian market, they will sell Asian basils for much less than the supermarket prices. Thanks, GinnyP, for a top notch (and easy:-) ) veggie side dish! Hmmm... it was soooo tasty maybe I'll add chicken, pieces or minced, and turn it into a main dish. YUM YUM!

      Wow this is so good! I added just a tiny bit of rice vinegar and some thin strips of smoked tofu (to make it a main dish). Yum, I will make this again.

      Yum! We love asparagus! I used soy instead of fish sauce and I did not have any fresh basil. Very good recipe!

      Very good. Used the sambal suggested by other reviewer. Had to give it 5 stars because my 8 year old, who normally doesn't like asparagus, asked for seconds!

      Oh my! This is the most delicious asparagus dish I have ever had. I took Chef 37636's tip and used sambal oelek. I also added broccoli because I had some left in the fridge. I think everyone who likes Thai food needs to try this at least once. It was a huge hit at home - thanks for posting!!
