Pacific Island dipping sauce

    10 min

    Finadene sauce is a favourite among Pacific Islanders. This can be used as a general condiment, dipping sauce or marinade. Finadene sauce can be kept in the fridge for a month. The heat of the chillies will intensify over time.

    Ai adai, there's nothing like Nana's fina'dene best. But this has all the essential ingredients for excellent sauce. Only I add some chopped green onions just for the color. And vinegar or lemon powder come in handy when fresh lemons are not in season.  -  10 Jul 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
