Make Ahead Tip: Cover and refrigerate for up to 1 day.
Tips: Look for fiery hot Thai “bird” chiles or fresh cayenne chiles in well-stocked supermarkets or Asian markets. If you can't find them, serrano or jalapeño chiles can be used as a substitute.
Fish sauce is a pungent Southeast Asian condiment made from salted, fermented fish. Find it in the Asian-food section of well-stocked supermarkets and at Asian specialty markets.
