      Someone gave me 5 large jack-o-lantern type pumpkins and searching for a recipe I discovered this. I had to make substitutions because fish sauce, palm sugar and chile pepper jam aren't available here, but I think I got a close approximation of the sauce. Also, I dredged the pumpkin in Cajun seasoning before roasting. What an interesting way to cook and serve pumpkin. The dressing is great and I like that there is no oil in it. This dressing is so good that I am trying to think of other ways to use it as well. Maybe as a dipping sauce for something. Thanks for a great recipe.
