  • Summary

    This condiment, called nam pla prik (nam pla is fish sauce, prik is chile), is found on virtually every home and restaurant table in Thailand. It’s considered a flavor enhancer, similar to our salt and pepper, and is fantastic on Thai Beef Salad, spooned onto plain or fried rice and grilled meats or fish, or as a dipping sauce for raw vegetables, spring rolls, and summer rolls. The sauce is traditionally made with bird's eye chiles, but as they're not readily available in the States, we usually substitute jalapeño and/or crushed red pepper flakes.

    Ingredients

    • 1/4 cup (60 ml) fresh lime juice
    • 2 tablespoons fish sauce
    • 1 large garlic clove, minced
    • 1/4 red or green jalapeño, unseeded and thinly sliced crosswise, or more to taste
    • 1 packed tablespoon light brown sugar
