"Kimchi" Chili Sauce

An anchovy fillet and some fish sauce mimic fermented kimchi's slightly funky undertones, but they won't hit you over the head with fishiness (we promise).


  • 1 inch piece ginger, peeled, coarsely chopped
  • ½ cup hot chili paste (such as sambal oelek)
  • 2 Tbsp. unseasoned rice vinegar
  • 1 Tbsp. fish sauce (such as nam pla or nuoc nam)
  • 1 Tbsp. gochugaru (coarse Korean red pepper powder)

Recipe Preparation

Ingredient info:

  • Hot chili paste (sambal oelek) is available at Asian markets and in the Asian foods section of many supermarkets.

  • Purée anchovy, ginger, garlic, chili paste, lime juice, vinegar, fish sauce, and gochugaru in a food processor until smooth.

  • DO AHEAD: Sauce can be made 1 week ahead. Cover and chill.
