“This delicious, easy to make dish is adapted from "The Best of Vietnamese and Thai Cooking" by Mai Pham. The spicing here is very gentle, definately not like the bold flavors of Thai cuisine. However one can always add more spice if preferred. We like this dish because it's delicious and easy on the calories. However the sauce is minimal, I usually double the amount. I like this with French bread, and a salad or side diah.”
