This roasted Chilli Jeaw is the perfect companion to steak, BBQs, Veggies and more! The roasted flavour is combined with the iconic Thai flavour profile of salty, sweet, spicy and sour flavours! This recipe was created by Thai street-food chef, Sebby Holmes of Farang, London.


  • 150g Mix of Chillies – Red, Yellow & Green in a variety of sizes (slice the larger chillies)
  • 200g Cherry Tomatos.
  • 5 Shallots.
  • Oil.
  • Sea Salt.
  • 2 tsp Thai Taste Palm Sugar.
  • 1 tbsp Thai Taste Fish Sauce (or Thai Taste Vegan "Fish" Sauce)
  • 2 tsp Thai Taste Tamarind paste.
  • 2x Steaks, we used 2x 200g British Sirloin steaks.
  • Fresh Coriander to serve.

Steps for cooking

  • 1.First, let's make the roasted Chilli Jeaw as it can be stored in your fridge for a couple of days until it is needed. In an oven-proof dish add the chillies, tomatoes & shallots.
  • 2. Pour over non-flavoured cooking oil and sprinkle with coarse sea salt. Give it a good mix and place it in the oven at 200°C.
  • 3. Roast for about 20-30mins or until the chillies have popped,and the shallots are cooked through. take out of the oven and let cool.
  • 4. Clean off the ends of the chillies and outer layers of the shallots. Add to either a food processor or you can use a large pestle and mortar & blend until a coarse dip is created.
  • 5. Taste and add the Palm Sugar, Fish Sauce and Tamarind to taste.
  • 6. To cook the steaks start by having a pan on high heat. Season the steak before putting it into the pan. Smear with oil and coarse sea salt.
  • 7. Add to the dry pan, leave until the juices start to cook. Cook on both sides to your preference.
  • 8. Take out of the pan and allow to rest,and move to a chopping board to slice. We served with some fresh coriander and our roasted Chilli Jeaw.
