Cambodian Black Pepper Dip


  • 2 tspn freshly ground Black Kampot Pepper (this takes a lot of grinding, but don’t skimp on the pepper)
  • 1/2 tspn salt
  • 1/2 tspn sugar
  • 2 tspn lime juice


Cambodia produces some of the best black peppercorns in the world – Kampot Pepper. It tastes like other black pepper, except that it’s stronger and more fragrant.

A few times while we were in Cambodia we were served a sauce made of ground black pepper, lime juice, salt and sugar. This sauce is primarily used as a meat dip, but we like to eat it with rice and vegetables too.
