Garlic Chili Lime Marinade and Sauce is literally, a zesty way to flavor anything you want a spicy, Thai style sauce for. My favorite part of most dishes is usually the sauce. My sister and I in Santa Fe, had a falling out once when I kept eating all the sauce out of her husband's Nigerian food. It occurred to me that I should just start making my own sauces and take care of my cravings for myself.
