Oops I meant garlic and ginger, not lime!

Also, even though the combination of soy sauce, fish sauce, garlic and lime is magical, it seemed that there could have been more of everything to give the final product more oomph. I'm not sure, though about adding more fish/soy sauce - would it take longer to bake off the moisture and thereby scorch the nuts? Maybe just more ginger and sugar would suffice.

This recipe was pretty good, but could be better. I wish there had been at least a suggested amount of salt, because I really wasn't sure whether to start with 1/4 tsp, a half or more!
