Recipe for Hot Thai Dipping Sauce

kingfish with hot thai dipping sauce


Caution: This stuff is HOT. And addictive. Especially good when served with shallow fried sea food on an asian salad bed.



Note: The strength and quality of ingredients have a major impact on the outcome! Remember to taste often, and keep adding a drop of this and a dash of that until the taste is to your liking. 

  • 3 tbsp lime juice
  • 2 tbsp fish sauce
  • 1 clove garlic, sliced fine
  • 1.5 tsp ginger, sliced fine
  • fresh chilli to taste, sliced thin (we threw in 3 very hot Thai 60mm chillies and will garnish with more!)
  • 0.5 tsp coriander root
  • cracked pepper to taste


Add chillies, garlic, ginger and coriander root in a small bowl and give it a bit of a bash to allow for better infusion of flavour. Add in all other ingredients and let sit in the fridge for at least 30 minutes.

Dip & enjoy!

    That looks nice. I was wondering what fish sauce brand you use?
