This is delicious!! But if you're feeling lazy you can get a read-to-serve version online from the Ultimate Fish Sauce. Don't forget, it makes a great marinade too.

I made this tonight and right from the start had my doubts about it. I tasted it and realised it was all out of balance. I doubled the lime and the sugar and that improved it somewhat. I used a small thai chilli and that was enough as we grow them and know they are super hot. I loved the ginger in the sauce and it was easy to make.
