Sauce Chien

By Andrew Zimmern

Sauce chien is a bright, sour, spicy, garlicky salsa that originated in the West Indies… it’s a perfect accompaniment for any grilled meat.


Combine all the ingredients except the water, lime and oil in a bowl. Stir to combine.

Add the boiling water. Set aside to cool.

Add the lime and oil.
