Spicy Thai Sauce

I love spicy Thai food.  This sauce is a basic Thai preparation that is very versatile and transforms any dish into an interesting, exotic creation.  Experiment with it on all sorts of stuff! 

  • ½ cup low-sodium soy sauce
  • Juice from one lime
  • Two garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1 small jalapeno, stemmed, seeded and finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon honey
  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, finely chopped
  • ½ teaspoon ground coriander
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce (I like Red Boat Vietnamese fish sauce)
  • ½ cup red, yellow and orange (any combination) bell peppers, chopped in a medium dice

In a small sauce pan (or better yet, a saucier), heat soy sauce, lime juice, garlic, jalapeno, honey, ginger and fish sauce, along with about a third cup water, for about five minutes.  Let cool slightly, then puree in a food processor.  Return to sauce pan, add chopped red bell pepper and simmer for about ten minutes, until pepper is soft. Serve with fish (see my whole fish recipe), chicken, pork or anything else!  Watch the video
