Thai Chicken with Basil

Thai fish sauce, or nam pla, 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.
