Authentic Thai cuisine is full of delicious and unique flavors that you won’t find in other cuisines. Thai combines sweet and savory flavors in a way that has made it beloved throughout the world.
One of the most important components of Thai cuisine is the sauce. There are many different Thai sauces that are used to accentuate the dishes and make them even more delicious.
Here are some of the most popular sauces that we use in Thai cuisine:
The classic Thai peanut sauce is one of the most popular flavors in all of Thai cuisine, and it’s one sauce that makes Thai cuisine unique. Peanut sauce is served with entrees, salads, and appetizers to add a completely unique flavor to each dish.
Thai peanut sauce combines sweet and savory notes with a little bit of heat and acidity to take each dish to a new level of complexity.
Sriracha is a unique type of hot sauce that is very popular in Thai cuisine. It’s usually served with seafood dishes like shrimp or calamari, but can be used with a number of other appetizers as well. Some versions of sriracha are sweet, while others are much more savory.
The flavor in the sauce comes from hot chili as well as garlic, which gives a kick to any dish.
Sweet Chili Sauce
A sweet chili sauce is also a great way to add a kick to any dish, but it is very different than sriracha. As you might expect, this sauce has a sweet flavor, and it has a very different consistency than sriracha.
It’s a very popular dip for spring rolls and other classic Thai appetizers.
These are just a few of the many popular sauces in Thai cuisine. When ordering Thai food, be sure to look at what type of sauce is served with your meal. This will give you a good indication of the overall flavor of the dish.
