Description

Pesto is a pretty classically Italian sauce, with basil and tons of fresh garlic. This version is inspired by another bold cuisine, Thai. In place of the basil, this recipe uses cilantro. The garlic gets a boost from ingredients like chiles and ginger, while a bit of lime juice adds acidity. This sauce is super versatile, it can be enjoyed on rice noodles or act as marinade for a piece of meat or fish.
