If you’ve dine at a Lao or Thai restaurant, you had this sauce. This sauce is considered traditional for us Lao and Thai people. I always make sure I have this sauce on hand. You can spoon it over plain rice, fried rice, noodles, etc.
Back in the day, when eating spicy food was a part of my life I would make this sauce pretty spicy. Now my stomach is very sensitive and can not take spicy anything. I mean it’s even sensitive to Salsa! I created this recipe more on the milder side but you are welcome adjust the spice level.
