Low Carb Sweet and Spicy Thai Grilling Sauce

I had meant simply to make this as a straight Thai sweet chili  sauce, but added a  few  things to give  it a fuller flavor to use as  a dip or grilling glaze. So while they will be quite similar, they aren’t exactly  one  for one. I’ll do a straight sweet chili sauce some other time.

I can’t recall which diets (such as Keto or Paleo) this abides by strictly but will post the nutrition facts for you to look at. You’ll have to see if everything checks out with your diet plan. I am doing a general diabetic low-carb,  and it works for me.

Don’t take anything here as nutrition advice, as I am neither your dietitian or doctor.

The chia in this looks a little bit like it has sesame seeds added. It adds a little fiber. You don’t really notice it.

The sauce would be nice as a dipping sauce besides a grilling sauce. It can be so difficult to find something with a good consistency that doesn’t taste like crap.

I really liked this on the fish, and hope you enjoy it as well. You know with salmon, oil your grill well, also oil the fish and do it a couple minutes per side, turning only once. Otherwise fish will give you a hard time. You can always grill on  foil  too, as  long as you give some space for the smoke to come to the fish.

I served this with grilled sliced zucchini and blistered shiishito peppers.
