This easy stir-fry packs a punch of umami flavor, thanks to fish sauce, lime juice, and fragrant basil. Traditional Thai cuisine is built on the interplay of the five fundamental tastes: sour, sweet, salty, bitter, and spicy. Although the ingredients and technique here are pretty straight forward, the result is an explosion of flavor and texture that’s anything but simple. This recipe calls for the sweet basil variety you find in most grocery stores, but if you can find Thai basil, use it!
