I can’t tell you enough how much I love my Thai Seafood Sauce. I grew up in Bangkok Thailand, so I was spoiled with a variety of fresh seafood. When we had family get-togethers for seafood BBQ, my contribution was always the seafood sauce.
If seafood and the Thai Seafood Sauce were a couple, they would have the perfect marriage. This dipping sauce is fresh, tangy, sweet, a little bit salty and spicy. However, just like other Thai dishes, you can omit or use less chili if you don’t like spicy food. I know you probably think butter is way better, but please give it a try. You may find another side of you that you didn’t know you had. And if you don’t like it, hey, at least you gave it a try. 🙂
Here are the ingredients; limes, agave (or sugar), fish sauce, cilantro, Thai chili and garlic.
Throw everything in a food processor or blender.
Blend for 15-20 seconds.
There you have it, Thai Seafood Sauce. How easy was that!?
I use Thai Seafood Sauce in a lot of my seafood dishes, such as Tilapia in Parchment. Hope you give it a try, the recipe is below.
