This Spicy Thai Garlic Lime Seafood Sauce is so easy to make and makes any seafood taste extra spicy and flavorful!


  • 10 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup lime juice
  • 1/4 cup fish sauce
  • 12 tbsp brown sugar
  • 47 Thai chiles, depending on spice preference, finely chopped
  • 1 lb shrimp of your choice, we like extra large jumbo, but anything works, peeled and deveined


  1. Mix all the ingredients together.
  2. Warm it in a small saucepan over medium heat and stir a few minutes help dissolve the sugar.
  3. Taste!
  4. The key to Thai cooking is getting the flavor to what your taste buds enjoy. I prefer this sauce to taste more spicy and sour, but my sis-n-law likes it a little more sweet, so just make it whatever taste you enjoy the most!
  5. Bring 6 cups of water to boil.
  6. Add shrimp, and cook for 1-2 minutes until red.
  7. Drain shrimp.
  8. Dip the shrimp, and enjoy!


You can use this Thai seafood sauce for any seafood you prefer: squid, fish, oysters, etc.!

This works great as an appetizer or with rice as a main dish.
