There are thousands of Thai restaurants in the USA, but not many Thai sauces are regularly found in American households. We would like to change that by introducing our readers to some delicious sauces and condiments found in Thai cuisine and explaining why you should incorporate them into your home cooking!
Thai Peanut Sauce
As the name says, Thai peanut sauce is a peanut-based sauce with several herbs and spices, including coconut milk, tamarind, soy sauce, and garlic. This sauce is often served with satay or salad, but one WN Foods customer uses it to make Thai-inspired pizza. Its peanut flavor is approachable for people of all tastes, so give it a try!
Sweet Chili Sauce
This versatile sauce is made with red chile peppers and vinegar and can be served with anything from spring rolls, chicken, and seafood. If you’re a fan of Sriracha, we think you might love sweet chili sauce as well. Check it out!
Thai Curry Sauce
Don’t get this confused with Indian or Japanese curry! Thai curry has its own unique flavor thanks to its mix of curry paste, coconut milk, and choice of protein (seafood, meat, or tofu). This delectable sauce is sure to be a treat for your tastebuds.
Nam Phrik Ong
This Thai sauce is a perfect companion for fresh vegetables. Nam Phrik Ong is made of ground pork, chili paste, tomato, and sometimes shrimp paste. It may sound like a bit of a strange combination to Thai food newbies, but trust us when we say that it is amazing!
Thai Fish Sauce
Thai fish sauce or Nam Pla is a Thai food essential. The most basic version is just fermented fish and salt, but it is often mixed with other ingredients, like spices or chili paste. Try it as a marinade, dipping sauce, or in a stew!
