Tuk Meric is one of the most simple sauces to make and can be found in southern Cambodia – it is nothing more than fresh lime juice blended with ground black pepper. The quality of your pepper is going to make a huge difference to the end result and if you can get your hands on some Kampot pepper so much the better.
- 2 teaspoons freshly ground black pepper, or Kampot pepper. Don’t skimp on the pepper
- ½ teaspoons salt
- ½ teaspoons sugar
- 2 teaspoons freshly squeezed lime juice
- Mix the four ingredients in a small shallow dish and use as desired
- Kampot pepper tastes like other black pepper, except that it is stronger and more fragrant.
