This is excellent on the barbecue and easy to do. Use lemon grass instead of lemon rind if available. Soy sauce can be substituted for the fish sauce but it will change the flavour. Add more hot spices if more fire is wanted.

Delicious. I may try doubling the marinate next time I make this as there doesn't seem to be quite enough for the sauce.
