Thai Chili, Lime & Fish Sauce : น้ำปลาพริก
Now, I have seen many people posting their own recipe of “Nahm Pla Prik” around here but none of them looks appealing to me. I mean they chopped the chili the size as big as rocks and then they didn't bother to squeeze some lime juice in there. I guess “Taste is individual”, everyone has their own recipe & liking. If we can't have everything our way then we make it by ourself.
Thai people in general like to have this “Nahm Pla Prik” served with their meal. Its very versatile. Personally, I like to serve it with with omelette or with stir-fried mixed vegetables. I think it goes very well with mild food not spicy food. Maybe because I don't like food that's too spicy.
Find below my very own recipe of “Nahm Pla Prik : Chili, Lime & Fish Sauce”
4 Tablespoons of Premium Quality Fish Sauce
3-4 Tablespoons of Organic Lime Juice

Put everything in a salad-dressing-mixing bottle, close the lid and then shake well. Transfer into a serving cup. Serve with any kind of stir-fries, omelette, or any kind of mild food.
