Haven't tried it yet, but I will. I think I may leave out the fish sauce though. Thank you.

There's no "NOTE" regarding the fish sauce. 172 calories is a large snack, more like a light meal. Fish sauce is a salty condiment available in ethnic sections of large groceries but you can also safely substitute soy or tamari sauce in my opinion.
