A great hot sauce for stir fry and many other foods!

Most however are sweet hot and garlicky while lacking the personality of homemade sauce. Saus Prik is the traditional zesty accompaniment to shrimp rolls (Hae Koon,) Thai style fried chicken (Gai Tord,) and cold meats. It is interesting to experiment and find your own application.
