    This would have been good had it not been so overwhelmingly salty. It think the amount of fish sauce is an error - 5 Tbsps is more than I've ever seen in any recipe. It also imparted an off-taste to the turkey when it should have enhanced it. Perhaps serving it with rice would have helped balance the saltiness. I will try it again, but not without modification.

    This was super easy. I reduced the amount of agave by a tsp and I only added 1 tsp of fish sauce. There must be a mistake in my version of this recipe which calls for 5 tablespoons of fish sauce which I think would greatly overpower the dish. I might like a green vegetable, maybe zucchini, added to this next time.

    This was delicious and pretty quick. A riff on other similar recipes with the winning combo of ground meat + vegetable + fish/lime sauce (of which my favorite is Nigel Slater's Broccoli and Lamb from Tender vol. 1), we liked the combo of turkey and eggplant, which never would have occurred to me. I used slightly less eggplant than called for and thought it got lost a bit--would up it next time. Served with brown rice, a quick cucumber/rice vinegar salad, and hot sauce.

    Very good, but a tad too salty for my taste. This was the first time I used eggplant in a stir-fry and we really liked the silky texture of it. Substituted ground chicken for ground turkey.
