3 medium tomatoes, chopped
10 hot peppers
1 tablespoon shrimp paste
1 tablespoon fish sauce

Strain your hot sauce, then use a funnel to pour the sauce into a sterilized bottle with a tight lid. This sauce can be used immediately, but flavors will continue to develop over the next several days. Shake before using, as the sauce may separate slightly. This sauce keeps well, covered, and refrigerated.
