    Probably some Swedish meatballs and pasta.

    Or maybe some chicken salad. I'm not sure yet.

    This:
    1 tablespoon nam pla (Thai fish sauce)
    1 teaspoon cracked or coarsely ground black pepper
    1 teaspoon sugar
    1 small Thai chili, stemmed and seeded, or ½ teaspoon crushed red chili flakes, or to taste
    2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    2 teaspoons chopped garlic, or to taste
    2 medium-to-large shallots, chopped
    ½ cup washed, dried and chopped mint or Thai basil
    ½ cup washed, dried and chopped cilantro
    Salt and pepper
    1½ pounds skirt steak
    12 or 16 leaves Boston, red-leaf or green-leaf lettuce, washed and dried.

    1. Start a charcoal or wood fire, or heat a gas grill. Fire should be moderately hot. Grill rack should be no more than 4 inches from heat source.

    2. Combine first 7 ingredients in a blender or food processor and purée; add herbs and pulse to chop finely, but not quite purée. Taste and adjust seasonings as you like.

    3. Sprinkle steak with salt and pepper and grill 4 minutes a side. Cut into 4 steaks, arrange over lettuce, and serve with sauce. Or cut into strips, wrap each strip in a lettuce leaf, top with a bit of sauce and roll up.

    Fish sauce is EFFIN discusting. I heard when cooking with it, you should add it to a hot wok by dribbling it around the outside edge, allowing the fish stench to cook out before getting to the food.

    I know I eat plenty of asian food that has fish sauce in it, but I have never been able to cook with it.

    The good thing is it's not cooked in this recipe - it's just dashed in there for some salty fishy kick!

    There's so little in this dish that you can't really taste it, but if you leave it out, it seems like something's missing.

    I have a small pork tenderloin that I am going to grill up slow with piece of scorched applewood I pulled out of a campfire if I have a enough charcoal left. If not I am afraid it will be done on the gas grill. I have some plum tomatos and cukes that my nieghbor gave me and some fresh wild leeks from Tryon that I am going to make a salad with. I also have some presoaked beans I am not sure what to do with. I am thinking bean salad with some leeks.... I really wish I had some corn. The kitties are having stinky salmon fish heads along with some left over tripe.

    I think there was a thread here about fish sauce. Like any other salt component (soy sauce, anchovies, or, um, salt) it's not very good on it's own but it adds a lot of depth and helps balance other flavors. After using it a few times I got used to the smell of the sauce itself and pretty much fell in love with what it does. It also helps to use better quality stuff and make sure it's pretty fresh. The Thai Kitchen stuff works fine and I think it is less funky than others, but any decent asian market has higher quality brands and like olive oil there are grades based on the number of pressings, etc.

    I started that thread. I live in asian country. full on. that may be the problem, it's TOO fish saucey.. (the stuff I bought)

    the store i got it from also sells, whole fried fish, pork bung, eggs with the bird dead inside, large live turtles and frogs and quarts of blood among other things.

    I made pad thai with it, used a third of what the recipe called for and could hardly eat the meal.

    misread the menu last night (the place we usually go for sushi does nigiri as a single piece order, and not two) so we ordered about double what we wanted to.

    still polished it off, although it was about $100 worth of fish. :dead:

    I've found that $100 of sushi barely fills me up. Usually I eat a PBJ before I go for sushi. :D

    Last night's fare:

    Grilled salmon with a honey-dijon marinade
    Green beans
    Caprese (fresh tomato topped with buffalo mozz, basil, and EV olive oil)
    Long grain and wild rice
    A Marlborough area Sauv Blanc (with a screw top!)

    screw tops rock. i had a very nice aussie shiraz sat night w/ a screw top. the aesthetics of cork are nice, until you plunk down $$$ for a bottle of vinegar.
