    Whoa... this smelled amazing but 50g fish sauce was way too much. ..sorry.  I  had to add some sugar, lime juice and another litre of boiling water after i strained the stock to tone it down.   The flavors were then quite nice. I stemed some dumplings and vegies in the varoma while he stock was cooking. Great all in one dinner
