Spicy Shrimp Dip (Nam Prik Goong Sod) นำ้พริกกุ้งสด – Hot Thai Kitchen!
Outside of Thailand, dips are severely underrepresented, but in Thailand, we have dips as often as you might have a sandwich! “Nam Prik” is a type of Thai dip that is spicy (“prik” means chilies!) with very bold flavours. It’s served as part of a bigger meal, and for many families, a meal isn’t quite complete without a nam prik on the table!
Restaurants shy away from putting nam prik on the menu because they can be a bit of an acquired taste, but the one I am sharing with you today is what I consider a “beginner’s nam prik” because it is easy to make and easy to love with very simple ingredients. The perfect way to ease yourself into the world of nam prik!
