    morelhunter's Note:

    You can serve this with rice instead of noodles. You can use the dipping sauce over almost anything - as a dip, over noodles, on salads, seafood and meats. You can make it up to 1 day ahead, just refrigerate.

      I won't leave stars since I didn't follow the whole recipe. I skipped the dipping sauce and I made fried rice instead of noodles since I had so much leftover rice. I used 4 catfish fillets, yellow curry, yellow onions instead of shallot. There's enough sodium in the fish sauce, so no need to salt the fish. I broiled the fish (7 or 8 minutes) til done. It was very good. I think the noodles would have complemented them well!
