One of the questions that we get from many people coming back from vacationing in Thailand is about the fish sauce with chili pepper. You'd often see the a jar of fish sauce with sliced of tiny red and green chili peppers floating inside, sitting on a table at Thai eateries. To the Thais, chili fish sauce is our number one must-have condiments. No matter how tasteless the food is, the chili fish sauce will magically make everything delicious.
Green Mango Chili Fish Sauce, based on chili fish sauce, has the addition of shredded green mango and lime juice. This variation makes a great universal dipping sauce or a base for Thai salad dressing.
If you ever wonder what an average Thai eats at home, and if you could peer into their windows, you would often see a grilled catfish, fried fish or dried smoked fish eaten with this Green Mango Chili Fish Sauce. A Thai living abroad like me relishes Green Mango Chili Fish Sauce whenever I can get my hand on a green mango. With a bowl of rice, fried egg and this sauce is a meal I'm content.
