recipe prik nam pla

Prik Nam Pla

  • Author: Funky Asian Kitchen
  • Prep Time: 5 minutes
  • Total Time: 5 minutes
  • Yield: 1 cup 1x


  • ¼½ cup thai bird chiles, washed and stems removed
  • 1 cup fish sauce




  1. Wear gloves and use caution. Place the chiles on a cutting board and trim the stems. Use a sharp knife to mince finely. Use ¼ cup of chiles for light spice and ½ cup for medium heat.
  2. Place the chopped chiles in a glass container and add the fish sauce. Stir to combine. 
  3. Cover and store prik nam pla in the fridge. 


*You can add more chopped chilis to taste. Most Thais would be using 3/4 – 1 cup of chilis…I know 😉

*I use a glass container which doesn’t retain scents. If you use a plastic container, know that it may never be the same.

*This condiment lasts indefinitely. Top it off with more fish sauce or fresh chiles as needed.
