I recommend using á Thái bránd of light soy sáuce ás it will give the dish the most áuthentic flávor (ánd is whát we used to test this recipe), but light soy sáuce is closest to the type of Jápánese or Chinese soy sáuce thát you most likely álreády háve in your pántry or fridge. I find thát the closest mátch to Thái light soy sáuce is the low sodium version of máinstreám bránd like Kikkomán.
Dárk Sweet Soy Sáuce – Don’t háve this on hánd? Insteád of the dárk sweet soy sáuce, use 1 Tbsp light soy sáuce whisked with 1 Tbsp brown sugár.
