From the Yahoo site. I'm saving it to make when we start to catch plenty of fish around June.

Wow -- this was really exotic and delicious! Only used 1 pound of fish (haddock); really would have benefited from the full 1-1/3 pounds, so don't shortchange unless you have to. Also couldn't get palm sugar or Vietnamese mint, living where I do (the back of beyond), so made appropriate substitutions. A little squirt of Sriracha sauce, and voila! Will certainly make this again.
