Excellent spice paste!! This had a nice level of spice for us, but next time I might add a bit more cayenne as we like things super spicy. I grated the garlic instead of mincing it so that it would incorporate better into the paste. This recipe makes quite a volume, way more than 2-4 servings. I got a whole jar out of it, so I have plenty left to try in other dishes. I used this to glaze prawns, and it was delicious. Thanks for posting! Made for PAC Fall 2009.
