This is a beautiful chilli and lime sauce that partners well with any seafood. There is kaffir lime leaves in the sauce which brings a strong but delicate lime flavour.


Serves: 1 

  • 3-4 cloves garlic, finely diced
  • 3-4 chillies, to taste
  • 1 pinch salt, to taste
  • 2 teaspoons sugar
  • 1/4 cup (60ml) lime juice
  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • 3-4 kaffir lime leaves, sliced into very, very thin strips

  1. In a mortar grind the garlic with a sprinkle of salt to a paste. Add the chillies then grind them to a coarse paste.
