Notes:I cannot always find the “red chili garlic” paste, just the red chili paste so I just add some diced fresh garlic. I also mix the paste, garlic, lime juice, S&P like a dressing and then pour over the fish and veggies. I use a red onion, finely chopped and I like more crunch so I add green peppers & celery, diced.
