Nam Pla Phrik refers to Thailand's fish sauce with thinly sliced Phrik Khi Nu and a squeeze of lime, sometimes sliced garlic is added, too. This sauce complements fried fish and fried rice dishes, but it is used universally as a more sophisticated substitute for plain fish sauce. Prik Ki Nu is also known as birds eye chilis, birdshit chilis , scuds, dynamite chilis, or "mouse dropping" or mouse shit chili. These Thai chilis are viciously hot and are widely used in Thai cuisine. They form the basis for most Nam Prik recipes.
