This is a great addictive spicy lime dipping sauce. The taste is like layers of fragrance, heat, spice and lime. This is good with crispy whole fish, steamed or grilled shrimp..and spring rolls. NOTE: fresh or frozen lime leaves are available at most Asian markets..It is easy to buy fresh and freeze for later use..dried does not work so well..
