Temper the tangy limes and spicy Thai chiles by serving it with seafood or fish marinated in Lemongrass-Thai Lime Leaf Marinade.
- 8 limes, segmented
- 2 small red Thai or cayenne chiles, seeded and minced (see Note)
- 1/2 cup sugar
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1/2 cup minced fresh cilantro
- Crush together the lime segments, chiles, sugar, garlic and cilantro.
Tips & Notes
- Note: Thai chiles can be red or green, are only about 1 1/2 inches long and 1/4 inch or less in diameter. They are on the high end of the heat scale. Find them in Asian markets. If unavailable, substitute fresh cayenne chiles or 1/2 teaspoon, or to taste, of purchased chile sauce, such as sriracha. Fresh chiles can be frozen, airtight, for up to 3 months.
