I’ve put fish sauce into my curries and other dishes, but never chili. Trust me when I say I’m a convert now. Absolutely excellent. Thanks for sharing this recipe!” – Kyle

The best thing about your dishes is the simplicity of them. They are easy and interesting to make and when I have finished making them, I feel like a super cook. You have given me so much confidence in the kitchen and for this alone I thank the both of you.” – Julie P
