> New York Hudson Valley Eats & Treats!: Simple, authentic Thai hot sauce.

Simple, authentic Thai hot sauce.

This recipe uses Thai chilis.  They are small and powerful, and like all chilis, have their own particular taste.  For  the real authentic taste, go for the real Thai chilis.  If you can't find them, you could substitute other red and green chilis.  It won't be the real deal but it will still make a solid hot sauce.

Thai Chilis - Be careful,
These are HOT!

2 Green Thai chilis
2 Red Thai chilis
2 TBSP Lime juice
2 TBSP Fish sauce

1) Chop the chiles into 1/4 inch long pieces.  SAVE THE SEEDS, this is going to be spicy!

2) Mix the chilis into a bowl along with the fish sauce and lime juice.  Stir.

3) Let sit for 10-15 minutes.

And that's it, you're done!  This sauce will last for at least a few weeks at room temperature and probably indefinitely in the fridge.  Be warned, this is SPICY - but if you like Thai food, that probably isn't a problem.

This sauce goes well with _any_ Thai dish, including the Tom Kha Gai recipe in my last post.
