Sweet Spicy Dipping Sauce for Grilled Fish

Sweet Spicy Dipping Sauce for Grilled Fish

Instead of the usual dipping sauce of chili Padi in light soy sauce, I think this special mixed sauce goes even better with the grilled or pan fried fish.

Less salty with a tinge of sweetness, it gives the barely seasoned fish meat a full flavor by just dipping it into this refreshing sweet spicy sauce. Yes, you do not need to add extra seasoning to marinate the fish to make your grilled fish meal a delicious hit. With the dipping sauce.

3-4 chili Padi (Bird Eyes Chili), cut

Notes

Tips: Adjust amount of sugar for more or less, as desired taste. * It’s ok if you do not have Italian herbs at home, add chopped parsley instead. I preferred Italian herbs as it dedicates a more comprehensive flavour to my sauce. :)
