Milk Street Bowtie Pickled Chiles

Pickled Chiles

35 minutes 5 minutes active

1 cup

Our Thai fried rice was delicious on its own, but some of us wanted to spike it with something bold. Our solution: jalapeno chilies pickled in fish sauce, lime juice and a little sugar. It’s a milder variation of the typically fiery Thai dressing called nam prik. The chilies and their sauce added a balanced hit of heat, sweet and acid.

4 jalapeno chilies, stemmed, seeded (if desired) and thinly sliced crosswise
1/4 cup fish sauce
1/4 cup fresh lime juice
1 teaspoon white sugar
