Seafood Dipping Sauce นำ้จิ้มซีฟู้ด (nam jim seafood)
If you have good seafood, this is the only sauce you need. In Thailand, there is never a seafood feast without this sauce. Garlicky, spicy, tart, it augments the flavour of shrimp, crab, fish, lobster, mussels…any kind of seafood you’re having really! Try it once and you’ll be hooked!
In a mortar and pestle, pound garlic and chilies to a paste. Add palm sugar and pound until dissolved. Add cilantro roots and pound to a paste. Add fish sauce and lime juice; stir to mix. Store in the fridge in a tightly sealed container.
