This is a bright sauce filled with flavor that I love to serve with dumplings and even shrimp cocktail. It’s also a light and delightful marinade for chicken or fish. I also make a quick veggie tofu stir-fry dish using this sauce whenever my vegan friend Kelly comes over and she always asks for seconds.


  • 1 teaspoon finely chopped shallots
  • 1 fresh hot red or green chili, preferably Thai (deseeded if you prefer less heat), finely sliced</


Combine all of the ingredients in a small food processor or blender until blended. Transfer to a small serving bowl.
