Chef John's Thai-Style Sweet Chili Sauce

"Here's my take on Thai-style sweet chili sauce, or Nam Jim. It's sort of a hybrid between the cooked and fresh versions. If you can't find Thai bird's eye chilies, use any other combination of fresh, preserved, and/or dried chilies. Things like jalapeno, red Fresno, or Serrano chilies work great, as does habanero. This sauce is great on grilled chicken and pork."

  1. Place 1/2 cup cold fresh water and vinegar in a saucepan. Whisk in Asian fish sauce, brown sugar, ketchup, sambal chili sauce, and cornstarch. Whisk until cornstarch disappears. Place over medium-high heat and bring up to a simmer stirring occasionally. As it bubbles, it will start to thicken up. Remove pan from heat.
  2. Whisk garlic and chili into hot mixture. Add fresh lime juice; whisk again. Allow mixture to cool to room temperature before checking for seasonings.
  3. If not using immediately, transfer to a glass jar with a lid. Refrigerate.

This is my new go-to Asian sauce. Can't wait to use the left-overs on some spring rolls. I used two habaneros and one serrano chili. This made it seriously hot, but we like it that way. It seeme...

Wonderful. Nice to have fresh ingredients and no preservatives
