  • 1/4 cup scud chillies
  • 1/2 head garlic, peeled
  • 1/2 lime
  • 1/2 cup lemon juice
  • 1 cup fish sauce


  1. In a mortar and pestle, pound the scuds to a paste.
  2. Slice the garlic cloves into slivers. Slice the lime into very thin triangular slivers.
  3. Combine the scud paste, garlic and lemon juice, mix well and add fish sauce. This is a seasoning (like salt and pepper), so it should be salty. Add the lime slivers just before serving.
