5   Baimakrut - (kaffir lime leaves), shredded
3 tablespoons 45mlGarlic - sliced

Recipe Instructions

This is a traditional Isan [North East Thailand] dip for barbequed meals, steamed fish and vegetable dishes. The traditional method of cooking the anchovies is as shown below: if you prefer you can wrap them in aluminum foil and roast them in a medium oven for 15 minutes.

You can also remove the heads and backbones first. You can also use tinned anchovies (drain and use - they are already cooked). Wrap the anchovies in banana leaves, and place on the embers of a charcoal brazier until the leaf blackens. Remove from the fire and unwrap.

Discard the heads and backbones of the fish. Combine all the ingredients in a mortar and pestle or food processor. Will keep for about 3 weeks if refrigerated.
