Paul reached out to me and needed to share this Naam prikh noum with Carolina reaper recipe with the new sauce group. Thanks Paul!
The thought first sprung from a present of six Carolina reapers pods, of which I’ve saved three pods for rising afterward, and so I made a decision to make use of three in a recipe.
The chili recipe is for a northern Thai chili dip referred to as “Naam prikh noum”, a contemporary chili pepper dip eaten with contemporary greens and even merely with sticky rice. Historically, this recipe is especially made with Thai inexperienced chilies, nonetheless, I’ve had different equally genuine recipes which had been crimson and inexperienced chilies and tomatoes. That is what I went for.
My recipe as follows.
- 3 Carolina reaper pods (if dried, reconstitute in just a little heat water)
- 3 cloves of contemporary garlic
- 1 medium shallot
- 6 to eight heirloom cherry tomatoes (any cherry tomatoes can do)
- Fish sauce (2 teaspoons)
- Lime juice (2 teaspoons)
If the Carolina Reaper pepper pods are beforehand dried, reconstitute in just a bit heat water with out urgent the pods. Calmly smash the garlic. Reduce shallot lengthwise into 3-4 items.
Put reapers, shallots, garlic, tomatoes on an oven tray, and broil on excessive depth for like 5 minutes, or till darkish brown (even when some blackened floor present, it’s positive), and check out to make sure all surfaces are broiled, so flip them a couple of times. Let the whole lot cool utterly.
Put all broiled gadgets right into a mortar, add lower 1 tablespoon of cilantro leaves and a few stems, and mash (carolinas, tomatoes, garlic and shallots needs to be mashed, no massive chunks if potential). Add two teaspoons of fish sauce, two of lime juice, and a pinch of salt. Combine nicely, and it is able to function a dip for contemporary uncooked carrots, cabbage, string beans. This makes sufficient for one dip.
Another choice is similar course of as above, besides on the finish as an alternative of utilizing the mortar and pestle to mash, simply use a blender to make a positive liquid scorching sauce. Use this sauce so as to add warmth and bitter profiles to a BBQ sauce or marinade, or a number of drops subsequent to a steak or in a chili con carne recipe.
Take pleasure in!
