Sweet Chili Thai Sauce
- 1/2 cup water
- 1/2 cup rice *vinegar
- 1/2 cup sugar (you can reduce the amount if you prefer less sweet)
- 2 tsp. fresh ginger, minced
- 1 tsp. hot chili pepper, minced (I used jalapeno with most of the seeds removed)
- 2-3 tsp. ketchup
- 2 tsp. cornstarch mixed with 2 Tbs. cold water
In a small saucepan, whisk together all ingredients except the cornstarch and 2 Tbs. water. Heat to boiling, reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes.
Stir in the cornstarch/water mixture and continue simmering 2-3 more minutes until thickened.
*My friend, Jan gave me a bottle of Rosemary vinegar that she made herself and I used it in this recipe instead of the rice vinegar. I didn’t notice overt Rosemary flavor and loved using this culinary gift from a dear friend 🙂
Recipe Note: I considered simmering the sauce for a longer time to reduce instead of a adding the cornstarch to thicken. I imagine it would be a little more pungent and more concentrated and I plan to try it the next time.

Oh Lorraine, this sounds so good! I love shrimp cocktail, but this spicy sauce sounds like something my family would love.
Happy 2015 to you and your family!

I was walking through the grocery store, just there to pick up a couple of things, but cruising to see what all they had. I stared at the jalapenos for quite some time, wondering if I had a recipe in this week's rotation that called for them, decided that I did not, dismissed them, and walked on by. Why, oh why, did I not buy that jalapeno because I have every other ingredient required for making this dish and I am positively drooling at the thought. Also, I love those litle serving dishes. So cute. The perfect presentation.

There won't be any party here but that doesn't mean I can't make something special for just us to snack on. This sounds good and I love shrimp
