Crying Tiger Sauce

 A few years ago I was in the Thai border town of Nong Khai which faces the capital city of Laos, Vientiane, just across the Mekong River, it was in a tiny but very popular restaurant there where I first tasted this version of Crying Tiger sauce. I've encountered many different versions of this sauce over the years, some good, some not so good. In its simplest form this sauce is just a basic น้ำจิ้ม "Nahm Jim" or dipping sauce. The Lao owner & chef was kind enough to share her recipe with me, thicker and smokier than other sauces of this type I had come across before, it became one of my favourites, hope you like it! A word of caution, this is one hot sauce! This sauce also makes it easy to prepare an authentic Laab Gai or Thai Chicken Salad, a classic Thai dish that is otherwise quite difficult to obtain the ingredients for to make correctly.

Loved this

Purchased several pastes, only tried the massaman one so far using a recipe provided by my Thai curry on their website-the whole roasted massaman chicken. Being after Xmas added sprouts and green beans, flavour was delicious. Will definitely be buying again.

Amazing flavour, hot but not over the top. Worked wonderfully on a tomahawk steak! These pastes are stunning.

Emma Hodgson (Brighouse, GB)

Used this marinade for some fillet steak for a starter when we had friends round for dinner. Everyone said it was the tastiest steak they’d ever had! It has a definite kick of heat which we loved!
