I made it with pureed zucchini and celery in place of the peppers. A little salty with 2 tablespoons of fish sauce. Will use less next time.

I did the one pot method - wouldn't recommend unless you're looking for a mushy meal. However, the taste was pretty good. Added a lemon (only had 1 lime on hand) and 1 tbs fish sauce for a more sour and salty taste.

I didn't have shallot, fresh basil, or fish sauce so I used half onion diced, dried basil, and fish sauce paste. I added some mushrooms with the red pepper. I also added some salt & black pepper at the end just to bring out the flavors. I also added more lime juice, chilli peppers, & sugar to my taste. Topped off with the green onions & chopped peanuts because I like texture. The result was sweet, spicy, & slightly sour it was yummy & I will make again.

It was great. I'll definitely make this again. Next time I'll add a bit more garlic and a little more spice. This is nice wrapped in lettuce leaves as well.
