500 g. Shrimps
¼ cup Fish sauce

Ingredients for sauce
50 Birds eye chili
10 cloves Garlic
1 tbs. Coriander, thoroughly sliced
3 tbs. Fish sauce
3 ts. Sugar
¼ ts. Salt
4 tbs. Lime juice
¼ cup Mint for topping

  1. Put the shrimps on a plate. Pour ¼ cup of fish sauce over the shrimps and keep them in a refrigerator for about 1-3 hours.
  2. Making sauce by blending birds eye chili, garlic, and coriander. Flavor with fish sauce, lime juice, sugar, and salt. Stir until the sugar is diluted.
  3. Top the shrimp with sauce. Serve.

Easy, right? As I said before, this dish is a good food eaten with drinks. Thai people usually have many foods eaten with alcohol beverages like many Asian cuisines. Most of the dishes are hot, sour,  and spicy, so you have to drink to soften the hot and spiciness, make it more fun in drinking with friends. 

I have just open an online home accesaries shop (you can visit it at, but it was written in Thai, of cause!), also plan to looking for a export market about Thai paper (Saa paper) and Thai local fabric in the future, may be in the 3rd or 4th quarter of the upcoming year, so I'm kindda busy. Anyway I will try to post recipes at least once a week. Enjoy your life! :)
