Fresh, sharp, and addictive, Thai dipping sauce, or nam jim, is quick, easy and will fast become your go-to, all-purpose summer flavour. This recipe isn’t an exacting science, more a loose template. Add more of the flavours of what you like and less (or none) of what you don’t all work here.
It’s important to let this sauce sit for an hour or so before serving it with grilled shrimp and pineapple skewers, chicken kebobs, or pretty much everything but ice cream. If you’re making this ahead of time, add the cilantro just before serving.
