Couldn't eat this after making it, tasted very limey. Substituted sweet soy sauce for soy and brown sugar as couldn't find any sweet soy sauce in local supermarkets.

Wonderful dish! Very easy and quick to make, as well as healthy! Can't think of anything I would do to improve, 10/10. Perfect for us living in Indonesia, as ingredients are readily available here. Will be making again, and again!

I would love to try this recipe, but I'm struggling to find any pak choi.. I've never cooked with it before, does anyone have any suggestions of a substitute?

I'm surprised you are struggling to find it as it is readily available in most supermarkets. Most Chinese leaves will work, or cabbage but it won't be quite the same. I'd probably use a baby gem gem lettuce if all else fails. Try asking for it next time you are in a supermarket if you can't find it. It may be that you have missed it in the store as I would expect to be able to go in to any Tesco, sainsburys, morrisons, asda waitrose etc and get some

I read the comment from Becka Jackson below about too much lime juice so I was cautious and added the juice of 1,5 limes - it was perfect! Also, couldn't find the Kecap Manis so used ordinary soya sauce with a large teaspoon of brown sugar. To dissolve the sugar, I heated all the ingredients together and it worked brilliantly.
