this was delicious. everyone i have made it for has asked for the recipe. you may be put off by the smell of the fish sauce, but it tastes great in the salad dressing. - 08 Oct 2008


This is a god recipe. I did not have limejuice so substituted lemmon juice and rice wine vinegar for that. We can't use fish sauce due to allergies so I used water and salt instead. I added some cucumber cut in matchsticks. However I am sure the recipe is great as is, and I want to try t with lime juice, soon. A great summer dish! - 13 Jun 2011


Used different ingredients. This was delicious. I added some grated cucumber and a little sesame oil to the dressing. This is a very fast meal if the salmon has already been cooked. - 08 Oct 2008
