I made a half recipe of this for dinner tonight. I followed the recipe axactly as written (except for reducing everything by half). This is SO delicious!! I'm lucky that I have a huge Asian market close by so I was easily able to get the fish sauce. Thanks for this recipe. It's Great!! I'll have the leftovers for tomorrow's lunch!!
