Lime Fish Sauce Recipe Ideal For BBQ Fish

Many folks automatically head for the lemons when grilling fish but this lime fish sauce recipe will add a new dimension to your next BBQ grill cookout. I’ve also added a few pieces of chili just to give it a hint of heat, a typically Italian way of serving fish.

This sauce is light in texture and big on flavor so don’t worry about the fact the ingredients don’t seem to make an awful lot. It’s the sort of sauce that just get drizzled over the fish adds a lot of color and with lime, fish sauce and chili there’s plenty of punch packed into a tablespoon.

This sauce turns any grilled white fish filet into something really fresh that I just know that you are going to love it!

Yield:- ½ cup 120ml

Preparation Time:- 15 minutes
Cooking Time:- 3 minutes

Total Time:- 18 minutes


  • One lime
  • 100ml or ½ cup fish stock
  • 1 tablespoon red onion finely chopped
  • 1 teaspoon Thai fish sauce
  • 10g or ½oz of unsalted butter
  • ½ red chilli, seeded and finely chopped
  • 1 tablespoon of finely chopped basil


A glass jug is ideal for mixing this sauce because it just needs a warm through and I like to give it a blast in the microwave when the fish is almost ready or while I’m serving up.

It’s simple to make, just add all the ingredients into the jug and give it 2 or 3 minutes in the microwave to bring it to the boil and soften the onions a little. When the fish is ready just spoon over a tablespoon or so of the lime sauce and tuck in and enjoy.
