Spicy Thai Dressing

Kaffir lime juice is seldom used in cooking but it's well worth using the fruit for their zest and a microplane grate is ideal for the task.

Juice of 3-4 kaffir limes plus enough lime juice to make quantity up to 1/4 cup
1 small red chilli, deseeded and very finely sliced
2 teaspoons brown sugar
1 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce
zest of 1 kaffir lime
2 tender kaffir lime leaves thinly shredded
1 teaspoon sesame oil
4 tablespoons mild oil such as avocado oil or a very light olive oil

Mix all ingredients well together and set aside to give the flavours a chance to mingle. Just before serving, whisk well and pour over salad.
