Yield: 1 Servings
Sesame-soy dipping sauce:
(2 tablespoons sesame oil, 2 tablespoons dark soy sauce) Mix oil and soy sauce together thoroughly.
(½ small lime, 10 cloves garlic peeled, 4 one-inch chunks fresh ginger, peeled and sliced, 12 fresh red serrano chiles, ¼ cup rendered chicken fat or vegetable oil, 3 tablespoons sugar, ½ cup white vinegar) Cut the lime into wedges (leave the skin on). Puree the wedges in a blender with garlic, ginger and chiles. Heat the fat in a saucepan over medium low heat.
Add the puree and cook for five minutes. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the sugar and vinegar.
Gingered oil dipping sauce:
( 1 tablespoon grated or finely minced peeled fresh ginger, 1 teaspoon salt, 3 tablespoons vegetable oil) Mix the ginger and salt in a heatproof bowl. Slowly heat the oil in a saucepan until it is hot but not smoking.
Test the oil by slowly pouring a small amount over the ginger-salt mixture.
If it does not sizzle, stop, return the saucepan to the stove and continue heating the oil until it is hot enough to sizzle on contact with the ginger.
