This recipe is from the book I am working from this month called, "Quick & Easy Vietnamese Home Cooking for Everyone" by Andre Nguyen and Yukiko Moriyama.

I used some kind of Vietnamese white fish, (sorry, can't remember the name) and followed this easy to make recipe, except for the 1 T. of syrup that is called for at the end; I forgot that! Well, it didn't matter, we gave this dish a 10! It just melts in your mouth and is so tasty! I didn't have a clay pot, (I broke the one and only that I had) so I just did the whole thing in a frying pan, then put a lid on for the simmer.

P.S. I forgot to add that we also had steamed jasmine rice, Sharon's cucumber salad, and spring rolls. Then, as if we needed more...I made Laura's butterscotch pie for dessert! Fantastic!

Sorry, I'm not sure. It was hard to read the label but it was Vietnamese something...so good, it just melts in your mouth. Please try this recipe, Sharon, and make your cucumber salad to go with it. It was perfect!

"I'm thinking catfish would be perfect!" Hello!! Gee, this does sound so good and with the cucumber salad, too.

Darn, seems like these good ones always come up when I'm on the road and then I have to try and find them...I need a system...or a secretary!

Thanks Maryann, it sounds right up our alley! The Thrift store had a clay pot, and I debated about buying it. May have to go back and get it!
Practice safe lunch. Use a condiment.

That recipe is actually from one of those "teaser" C@H magazines and it is Jennifer's absolute favorite salad. I have wonderful mint that Renae brought me. Adding cucumber to the grocery list for today.
