For this easy Chinese chile garlic sauce recipe, adapted from Asian Dumplings, fresh red chiles combine with garlic and vinegar with a touch of sugar.
Adapted from Andrea Nguyen
1Add the chiles, salt, sugar, and vinegar to a food processor and process to a medium-coarse puree.
2Taste and add more sugar or salt as needed—it should be spicy, with sugar, salt, and vinegar in more or less equal balance. Scrape into a serving bowl, or store in an airtight container, refrigerated, up to 5 days.
The trick to perfect scallops is to leave them alone once they hit the pan—they’ll stick to the skillet at first then release once they sear. If you prefer less heat, use just one Fresno chile and remove the seeds before adding to the pan.
