Short on time well this simple Thai style sauce i make is as easy and as quick as it can be. We use it a Thai stir fry sauce but even a great base sauce for for many a oriental dish’s. And it really is so simple.

We use a hand blender which has a chopping bowl attachment on it (seen in pictures) but any normal household blender or food processor will be fine.

I always try to make the night before and leave it in the fridge allowing the aromatic flavours of some of these ingredients to infuse Overnight. Its ok to hold for 4 -5 days and we often would do 2 different dishes throughout the week with it.


Top Tip 1: Play around with the spice i use birds eye chilis which are hot and fragrant ( I love the spice) but a long red mild chili maybe be better to start with, if you not to familiar with spice.

Top Tip 2 : The recipe calls for the juice of 1 lime when extracting juice cut lime in half and gentle heat in a bowl in a microwave for 30 seconds. The heat will release the natural juices even more making it easier to extract

So here it is our simple Thai style sauce

    This sounds so delicious! I love Thai food so I’ll definitely have to try making this sauce for myself! Thanks for sharing!

  2. I usually avoid Thai sauces/food as it often contains anchovy paste and I’m allergic to fish and shellfish but your recipe sounds ideal. I love Thai food in theory as it’s exactly the kind of food I love but I always just aired on the side of caution because of my allergy. Thanks for this, it’s fab!

  3. iFlyMSP – After a 35-year travel industry career, the time has come to kick back and relax. Well, not exactly, but it is time to travel without a business schedule dictating where and when. Over the years I've traveled extensively by air for work, both domestically and internationally. I've been to some incredibly exciting and beautiful destinations, and some others, not so much. So now it's my turn (and hopefully yours), to explore the world at a more leisurely pace. Whether you want to discover the U.S. or another continent, the Minneapolis/St. Paul International Airport is a great starting point. And that's what this blog is all about. I'm not here to assist the rich and famous in figuring out how to best earn and utilize their millions of airline miles and hotel points. Instead, my focus will be on the average Joe and Josephine. Hard-working people (like you!) who have saved up over time for their once or twice a year escape from reality. So if you're contemplating a getaway from MSP or the Upper Midwest via the Twin Cities, you've come to the right place. Happy trails!
