Fish Sauce with Chiles


From EatingWell:  May/June 2013

Downright addictive, this spicy fish sauce recipe marries pungent fish sauce with the fire of chiles. Try it in place of plain fish sauce but use sparingly as it’s high in sodium. You can use this fish sauce immediately, but it will be very hot. As it settles over the following days the fish sauce will gradually get a little milder.

1 generous cup | Active Time: 5 minutes | Total Time: 5 minutes



  1. Chop or mince chiles with a knife or in a food processor. Be careful: you may want to wear gloves, because these chiles are hot. Wash your hands after handling them. Transfer the chiles to a jar with a tight-fitting lid. Add fish sauce, cover and shake to mix well. Store in the refrigerator.
