Expert Tips

Beef, pork or shrimp can be substituted for the chicken.

If you can’t find fish sauce, substitute 2 tablespoons soy sauce and 1 tablespoon dry sherry.

When using fresh bean sprouts in a recipe, be sure to cook them thoroughly; don’t eat them raw.

Lime wedges and julienned carrots also make a nice garnish.
