• 2 Garlic cloves (minced into a paste) • 2 stalks Lemongrass (cut in half lengthwise) • 1 teaspoon Ginger (minced into a paste) • 1 cup Coconut Milk • 1 teaspoon Lime Zest • 1 teaspoon Fish Sauce • 1/2 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes • 1 teaspoon Soy Sauce • 1/4 Jalapeno (seeded) • 2 teaspoons Cilantro (chopped) • Salt to taste • 2 teaspoons Lime Juice • In a small sauce pan, add oil over medium heat. Add garlic, lemongrass and ginger and sauté until aromatic. Add coconut milk and allow to reduce until it thickens. Add all other ingredients, except cilantro and strain through a fine sieve.
