My family, who doesn't love spicy food, really enjoyed this dish after a few minor tweaks. I used yellow curry paste instead of red -- it has a sweeter flavor from onion & lemongrass, but still is flavorful. Thai basil wasn't available so I used more readily available Genovese basil (this is the basil most non-specialty grocery stores carry in the fresh herb section). Even with the fish sauce, the dish still needed some salt to enhance the flavor. My husband simply added red pepper hot sauce to his bowl to get reach the spiciness he prefers and he liked every bite! Beyond those minor changes the dish was delish and the kids asked if I'd make it again!
