From the Test Kitchen

This dish is inspired by the cuisines of Southeast Asia where the focus is on the balance of sour, salty, sweet, and bitter flavors. Here, sour comes from both the lime juice and the ponzu, a Japanese citrus sauce. Soy sauce adds saltiness and coconut palm sugar adds sweetness to help achieve that balance. Regular salt and pepper are still key for rounding out flavors, so don’t forget to season and taste as you go.
