Spicy Thai Seafood Dipping.
If you plan to have seafood in Thailand, you might want to try to make this dipping before you go so you'll not surprise when you are there, and you might get a look if you asked for the butter dipping there.
Steamed blue crab full of roe. I bought fresh from Chinatown.
Grill fresh squids, again, full of roe at street stall on Pa-ngan island, Thailand
Thai love to dip their seafood in this tangy and spicy dip. We usually don't season our seafood before putting them on the grill or a steam plate.
We rather let the real taste of the sea to show off then add a kick in a mouth with this dipping.
