Thai fish sauce, or nam pla, is a salty, watery, fermented sauce with a very pungent odor. It is used extensively in Southeast Asian cooking. You may be familiar with its flavor, as it’s the key ingredient in the sauce accompanying deep-fried spring rolls served in Thai and Vietnamese restaurants.

Ingredients

2
tablespoons vegetable oil
4
boneless skinless chicken breasts (about 1 1/4 lb)
3
cloves garlic, finely chopped
2
jalapeño chiles, seeded, finely chopped
1
tablespoon fish sauce*
1
teaspoon sugar
1/4
cup chopped fresh basil leaves
1
tablespoon chopped fresh mint leaves
1
tablespoon chopped unsalted dry-roasted peanuts

Directions

  • 1 In 12-inch skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat. Cut each chicken breast into 4 pieces. Cook chicken, garlic and chiles in oil 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until chicken is no longer pink in center.
  • 2 Stir in fish sauce and sugar. Sprinkle with basil, mint and peanuts.

Expert Tips

*To substitute for fish sauce, use 3 tablespoons reduced sodium soy sauce and 1 tablespoon dry sherry.
