NotesThis is a recipe inspired by something I saw in a cooking magazine and has become one of our favorite dishes to serve dinner guests (with Chicken Pad Thai as a first course). The soup/sauce is what packs the spicy punch so if you don’t want as much heat, just spoon the solids over your rice without the ladle full of sauce.
