Nam Jim Dressing- a perfect dressing or marinade

Spice up your meals with one simple and versatile dressing, it’s a HF favourite!

Nam Jim Dressing can be made with either red chillies (Red Nam Jim) or green chillies (Green Nam Jim), we love a red Nam Jim, which roughly translates to chilli water.

It can transform anything from a BBQ’s to fish dishes to zingy asian salads. And it lasts 2-3 weeks in the fridge!


  • 2 red chillies
  • 1 garlic clove
  • 1 shallot
  • 25 grams of coriander root

Once the top is pounded together or rough chopped in a blender add to taste;

  • 50ml lime juice
  • 50ml fish sauce
  • 20 grams of sugar


Once all blended together either drizzle over a fish dish, toss through a simple asian salad or drizzle over BBQ meat.
