Sheryl's Story

I got this condiment recipe from our weekly FOODDAY newspaper about a year ago and now it's almost always in the fridge! It's very hot, but it's so addictive, we can't find enough things to put it on!
We love it with fresh veggies or mixed in a little mayo and spread on a hot beef or pulled pork sandwich.
Let me know how you like it best! :D


thai chiles, or substitute 4 serranos or jalapenos
green onions, chopped in 1" chunks
1/4 c
chopped fresh cilantro
2 tsp
3 Tbsp
fish sauce (or to taste)
3 clove
2 Tbsp
minced lemon grass (tender inner leaves)
juice of 1 large lime
1-2 tsp
sugar, if desired

Directions Step-By-Step

Combine all ingredients in workbowl of the food processor. Pulse several times until coarsely chopped, but not pureed. (This is meant to be quite salty, but if you prefer it less salty, try cutting back on the fish sauce and the added salt. I use 1 T. fish sauce and about 1 t. salt)
This is a great condiment for Asian noodle or rice dishes but it's also great as a dip for tortilla or brown rice chips, fresh veggies or on sandwiches. If you want to dial down the heat, use fewer hot peppers.

    Sheryl, I know it won't be the same as fresh, but can you use the dried cilantro? I looked everywhere for fresh cilantro this a.m. for another recipe and none of the grocery stores had any.

    You're welcome, Doreen. Look forward to hearing what you think.
    Donna, I've never used dry, it's certainly worth the try. Some people who don't care for cilantro in recipes will substitute Italian flat-leaf parsley. It's a different flavor, milder and less citrus-y. I don't think it would be a poor substitute.
