Fermented soybean paste comes in a range of varieties and qualities that differ in color and consistency. The dark-colored variety, which is not too watery, is suitable for chili relish. You can also use Japanese miso. Tune the viscosity of the relish by adding dried shrimp pounded into powder; as fermented soybean paste tends to be watery and salty, you may need to use more dried shrimp than in the basic relish. As well, additional salt seasoning may not be necessary.

Serve with:

  • Grilled eggplant,
  • Fresh vegetables,
  • Fried grilled catfish or snakehead fish (whole fish or a slice),
  • Deep-fried fluffy catfish or snakehead fish (ปลาดุกหรือปลาช่อนทอดฟู).
