Tương Muối Ớt Lá Chanh (Spicy Lime Dipping Sauce Recipe) Recipe

In Vietnamese, "tương muối ớt lá chanh" would literally translate to "sauce salt chile lime leaves". It's a spicy sauce I came up with by using the kaffir lime leaves from our garden. They're so fragrant and very useful in Asian cuisine. I usually use them for making broth, but this time, I blended them with fresh green chiles, coarse sea salt, garlic, limes and a little sugar to balance the flavor of the sauce. I used it as a spicy dipping sauce for crab that I simply steamed. 

It's crab season so I stocked up on a lot of crabs that I cracked and stored in sealable bags for making crab cakes and soups in the future. 

If you have the space to plant a kaffir lime tree and you're into Asian cooking, go for it; it's a good investment. Plus the plant doesn't take too much space and it's almost maintenance-free.
