Thai sweet chili sauce recipe has a special place in my heart. It was the first store bought sauce I ever had. Thick, sweet and with a heat kick, I tried it in a grilled cedar plank salmon recipe. When me and Alex first got together, he introduced me to a couple who immigrated from Ukraine many years ago. I was 20, they were early 40s, I knew nothing about cooking and Natasha was an amazing cook! We had no kids, they did, so automatically we hung out at their place all the time to eat and drink. Good old days full of freedom, where are they now?!
Anyways, Natasha’s husband always marinated salmon fillet in a generous amount of That Kitchen’s sweet red chili sauce and then grilled on a cedar plank. 14 years later and we still use this recipe every grilling season. In fact, I will share that Thai salmon recipe next, adapted for the oven.
Going organic in March, made me look at the bottle closer and quickly realizing it contains GMOs. I flushed the sauce down the toilet, recycled the bottle and made a homemade Thai sweet child sauce recipe which utilizes very simple ingredients. Same thick, sweet and spicy makes amazing substitute to store-bought yuck stuff. It was delicious and keeps well in the fridge for months.
Great for stir fries, dipping Thai chicken bites into, making slow cooker Thai chicken thighs and you name it. Particularly serving on a side of a plate and dipping anything on that plate into it (my mom used to do it all the time).
