It’s just a dip sauce you’ll think, but you can’t be more wrong. This dip sauce is the perfect addition to any seafood. Thai people take their dip sauces seriously. The balance of this slightly sour, spicy, salty and refreshing dip sauce is perfect. I’m loving the Thai dip sauces, I hope you’ll like it too.
