• 2 tablespoon butter
  • ¼ cup chopped shallots
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¼ cup Guinness Draught
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • 1 tablespoon fish sauce

  • 1 teaspoon fresh ginger, peeled and grated
  • 4 teaspoons rice vinegar
  • 2 tablespoons sugar (to taste)

Instructions for Dipping Sauce

  1. Heat the butter on a grill or in a skillet over medium heat.
  2. Heat the shallots and garlic until the shallots are just soft.
  3. Remove from heat and reserve garlic and shallots.
  4. In a large mixing bowl, combine Guinness, lime juice, fish sauce, ketchup, sriracha, honey, ginger, and rice vinegar.
  5. Mix well until combined. Add shallots and garlic.
  6. Transfer to blender and blend well.
  7. Pour into medium saucepan over low-medium heat, stirring well until heated through.
  8. When sauce is heated, taste for seasoning. If it’s too sharp, add a tablespoon of sugar, stir for a few minutes and taste again. If still too sharp, add a second tablespoon of sugar and stir again.
  9. Continue to heat, stirring, until desired consistency is reached.

Season to taste with salt and pepper. Keep warm.

Instructions for Bangers

Grill your sausages, getting nice sear marks all over each one.

When sausages are cooked through, slice into bite-sized pieces on a diagonal. Arrange slices on a plate, or pile into a large bowl, and serve with the dipping sauce along with plenty of toothpicks for spearing.
