Chrouk Metae (Pickup Only)

In Cambodian, Chrouk Metae means fermented chili. In traditional Cambodian cuisine, Chrouk Metae is usually served as a spicy condiment that enhances cooked meat and noodle dishes. 

The Angkor family recipe for their Cambodian Chrouk Metae, or chili paste, balances spiciness with the rich flavor of red chilis, making it a perfect accompaniment to traditional Cambodian food or fusion dishes. It does not contain fish sauce, yet it still boasts the full-bodied umami flavor for which Cambodian cuisine is so well known.

Whether used as a side or in a dipping sauce, cooking with Angkor Chrouk Metae as an ingredient creates a rich, authentic Cambodian culinary experience.

Ingredients: Red Pepper, Water, Shio Koji(rice, water, salt, ethyl alcohol [to preserve freshness]), Vinegar, Chile Peppers, Sea Salt, Cane Sugar, Dried Garlic.
