    I am making the Spicy Asian Lettuce Wraps tonight...

    and I am psyched I roasted a chicken last night for dinner, so the leftovers are ready, I got my chili with garlic (with the rooster on it) and the dark sesame oil, so I am set.

    I seem to remember a dipping sauce with lettuce rolls at PF Changs, and the Cambodian lettuce rolls are served with a dipping sauce, so I am making that for tonight. I got my recipe from my Cambodian cooking bible, The Elephant Walk Cookbook. It is called Tuk Trey and is very simple:

    Tuk Trey

    3/4 cup water
    3/4 cup sugar
    1/3 cup fish sauce
    1/4 cup white vinegar
    2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
    2 garlic cloves finely chopped

    Bring the water to a boil in a small saucepan and add the sugar, stirring to dissolve. Remove from the heat and allow to cool. Add all the remaining ingredients.

    I'm going to make them tonight too! I have all the ingredients prepped and ready to go. That dipping sauce sounds yummy too - I 'm going to save that recipe for the future.

    I made mine last week. That sauce sounds good, I'll have to do that next time I make them. Is that book from the Elephant Walk restaurant in Cambridge, MA?
