Salty Hot Pepper Side
Salty Hot Pepper Side
(Makes 6-8 oz)

12 Serrano Chilies
3 cloves garlic, minced fine
4 tblsp Sambal Oelek chili sauce
ΒΌ cup soy sauce
2 tsp salt
1 tblsp olive oil

NOTES: I started making this for a rice dish I was trying to mimic called 'spicy crispy chicken over rice'. The chicken was easy, make nuggets deep fried. The rice even easier... make rice. The trick I found was this tiny amount of salty spicy mix that there was never enough of! Here is my version of that salty spicy mix!

In a medium sauce pan add the olive oil, when warm, add the sliced Serrano chili peppers. Sprinkle half the salt, 1 tsp, over the peppers. Cook down until soft, about 3 minutes, then let some get a tiny bit crispy, mix well. At this point add in the minced garlic and the last tsp of salt. Stir. let saute for 2 minutes. add in the Sambal Oelek, mix then add the soy sauce. Let simmer for 2-3 minutes. (the longer the more concentrated the saltiness). Use with your favorite recipes that call for some heat! Good in cheese dips, salads, pastas, breads spreads, etc! Enjoy!
