Somewhere, in my journey of food-ism, I became a spice fanatic. Maybe it was growing up on curry, or working with Thai people. I discovered a lovely sauce back in my pescatarian days that the some of the Thai loved called Nam Plah Prik. It was composed of fish sauce, lime juice, garlic, little thai chiles, and a bit of sugar (of course). That's the basic recipe and you add everything to taste. I plan to recreate it tonight with this recipe for vegan fish sauce:

While I am at this, anyone want to share their favorite spicy sauce/salsa/chutney recipes and the best uses for them? It'd be nice to find a hot topper for curries and beans. Sriracha gets boring after a while.

I just add Sriracha or prik pon to everything Asian. I will not get tired of Sriracha! Then ghost pepper flakes to all sorts of things. I also quick pickle jalapenos in a ghost chili brine weekly and eat them on everything.

after asking here i just kinda jumped into pickled peppers. 1 pt acv to 2 parts water, a pinch of flaky salt, a clove of garlic sliced thin, a pinch of ghost pepper flakes, simmered for 10 minutes on the stove top. pour this over a pint of sliced jalapenos, let the mixture cool and refrigerate it. i think the pickles start tasting the best after they chill for about two days.

I make a spicy kung pao-ish sauce with approx. equal parts soy sauce, hoisin, shoaxing wine. To that I add a quarter amount of agave or sugar. I sprinkle in some ghost pepper flakes and mix. Final step is to add this to whatever I'm stir-frying in the final seconds. Instant kung pao! If I'm feeling lazy and don't want to mince garlic I'll add a little sambal olek.

I put habaneros in anything needing spice. It's got a great kick!

I'm on a big gochujang kick at the moment. The extra fermentation gives it an interesting depth. I make a spicy mayo (soaked cashews, Dijon mustard, bit of olive oil, salt and gochujang, blended until smooth) and there isn't much that can be improved by being dipped in it.

I put zhug on basically everything..it's a Yemenite hot pepper paste widely available in Israel, and the Yemenites do not mess around with hot.
