I was concerned about this recipe because of the fish sauce. It's a very strong distinct taste, and I thought it being one of three ingredients in the sauce might be an issue for me. Well, I was sooo wrong!! I L -O -V -E -D this!! It was amazing! I think the contrast between the fresh lime juice with the salty fish sauce was amazing, mixed with the creaminess of the coconut milk. SO GOOD! I calculated calories as under 400, so that is an extra bonus. I will DEFINITELY make this again!!
