This is the most basic form of the family of spicy relishes known as nam phrik in Thailand. Nam plaa phrik is spooned over one's rice to spice up bland food, much the way salt is used in the west.
3 tablespoons Thai fish sauce (nam plaa)
3 or more phrik khii nuu (very small Thai chiles), sliced into rings as thin as possible
1 clove garlic, sliced
Juice of 1/2 lime
Put the fish sauce in a shallow dish, add chiles, garlic, and squeeze lime juice to taste.
