Saw this vid last week and about to try it out as I got the pounding thing/pounder and most of the ingredients. Gonna hunt for Thai peppers, gonna use serrano as its the only one available for now…just hope it won’t kill me! 🙂

What can I substitute cilantro with?

Also could this work with salmon sashimi or does it overpower the salmon?

This is literally my favorite sauce when I go to eat Thai food. 🙂 
Thanks for the recipe it’s simple to make.

Christian Pien says:

The best sauce I ever had was on Kata beach in Phuket this past February.  It was so delicious I wanted to buy the bottle from the vendor but he didn’t have enough.  I have tasted plenty of sauces in my time but that was the best.  First taste and I said to my travel mate that this was the best sauce he will ever try in Thailand.  After he dipped his shrimp into the sauce, he totally agreed.  I am going to try yours for sure tomorrow.  Btw .. love love your videos!!!!
