QUICK THAI CHILLI SAUCE

1-3 birds eye chilli
Pinch salt
2 Tablespoons lime juice
Large pinch white sugar
2 Tablespoons, fish sauce - widely available

If you have a pestle and mortar, pound chilli with salt until paste is formed add the lime juice, sugar and fish sauce. Mix to dissolve sugar, taste and you may need to fix the balance of flavours. It is fantastic drizzled over squid, crunchy salad with peanuts or as a dipping sauce.
