Nam pla prik is an essential dipping sauce in Thai cuisine and it demonstrates how Thai food is all about the balance of sour, salty, sweet and spicy. The amount of chilli is easily changed here, and it’s important to play around with the balance of other seasonings too, to find out how you like it. These are guidelines then, since ingredients vary and so do tastebuds!

This recipe makes enough dipping sauce for one meal.

Mix the ingredients together in a bowl. Taste and adjust seasoning where necessary
