Expert Tips

Regular tortillas can be used instead of spinach-flavored tortillas. Soy sauce can be substituted for the fish sauce.

Choose fat-free regular flour tortillas and reduced-fat peanut butter spread to trim the fat in these delicious salad cones.

Fish sauce, or nam pla in Thai, is a salty, watery, fermented sauce with a very pungent odor. It is used extensively in Southeast Asian cooking. You may be familiar with its flavor as it's the key ingredient in the sauce accompanying deep-fried spring rolls served in Thai and Vietnamese restaurants.
