This recipe was featured on week 39 of my food blog, "Travel by Stove." I am attempting to cook one meal from every nation on Earth, and Brunei is my 39th stop. This recipe originally appeared in "Southeast Asian Cooking" by Barbara Hansen. The original version includes 1/2 tsp of shrimp paste in the sauce, which I left out here because I thought it tasted awful. Use it only if you are familiar with and like the taste of shrimp paste.
