  • Didn't have Heinz chili sauce first time so I sub'd a tiny(tip of butter knife tiny)amount of ground chili paste instead. Authentic flavor.Tried Heinz next go- way too sweet for me. Use caution if u decide on chili paste- it doesn't take much!I had extra limes handy - 3/19/13

  • Very tasty recipe! Only thing: For it to be 100% vegetarian, nix the fish sauce. If that doesn't matter to you, have at it! - 9/18/09
