Things that make your nose wrinkle are the things that Pepper Thai loves to cook with the most. Think fish sauce, pickled garlic, and, the holy grail eau-de-dirty-sock-that-actually tastes delicious…Thai soybean paste . I guess they take those beanies and let them sit around until other beans don’t want to come over and visit anymore, but that’s when you know this sauce is magic: that funkiness gives this dish a kick like no other. If you can find them, microwaveable snow peas in a bag are pre-cleaned and ready to rock. If not, start from the top of each snow pea, grab the tip and pull down, releasing the thready fiber from each snow pea.
