  1. Thai-Style Sweet Chili Sauce – Nam Jim for the Win

    Tue, 7 Jun 2016

    As promised, here is my take on Thai-style sweet chili sauce, or Nam Jim , if you want to sound cool. I do a sort of hybrid between the cooked and fresh versions, and using this technique, I think you get the best of both worlds. If you can’t find these beautiful Thai bird’s eye chilies, you can make this sauce with any other combination of fresh, preserved, and/or dried chilies. Things like jalapeno, red Fresno, or Serrano chilies work great, as does habanero. If it’s hot, give it a shot. Above and beyond the array of deep-fried treats you enjoy this stuff with at your favorite southeast-Asian restaurant, it also makes an incredibly good sauce for grilled meats, especially chicken and pork. Even the most insipid boneless-skinless breast shines, once shined with this sauce. And I wasn’t kidding about the fish sauce being mandatory. It really is a key ingredient here, so I’m counting on you to either get some, or maybe sit this one out. As always, the amounts listed below are what tastes “perfect” to me, but what do I know? So, be sure to taste and adjust before you serve. I really hope you give this a try soon. Enjoy! Ingredients for about 1 cup of Thai-Style Sweet Chili Sauce: 1/2 cup water 1/2 cup white distilled vinegar 2 tablespoons fish sauce 1/2 cup brown sugar 1 tablespoon ketchup 2 teaspoons sambal chili sauce 1 1/2 teaspoon cornstarch 6 cloves finely crushed garlic 2 tablespoons finely minced Thai chili peppers (or more of a less spicy pepper like Frenso, Jalapeno, or Serrano) 1 tablespoon fresh lime juice
