Fish Sauce Marinade

  • SERVINGS: MAKES ABOUT 1 1/2 CUPS
  • FAST

This pungent mixture is especially good with sweet vegetables, such as red and yellow bell pepper wedges and quartered red onions, or with kale. Just lightly brush the vegetables or dip them in the marinade so that the salty fish sauce won't overpower them. To use with kale, dilute the marinade with an equal amount of water before dipping.
