Posh Pickles

When I received this little jar of Sa Va Tu’o’ng Ot (a Vietnamese Lemongrass and Chilli Relish) through the post from Posh Pickles*, I was so excited. At first I had no idea what it was, I tend to forget what I’m expecting far too quickly! However, when I opened it I was quickly thinking of everything I could make with it! Unfortunately it was around the time that I completely lost my appetite and this was not something that I wanted to just eat for the hell of it, so I saved it until today so I could enjoy it and man I did!


This spicy, sweet, sour and salty marinade from Vietnam goes perfectly with salmon in my opinion. However, on the website they suggest using it with a beef or pork stir fry or smothered on chicken before roasting. Or even more so, mix in with pork meatballs or eat with some delicious sausages. I’ve never been one for following recipes so I paired my relish with salmon cooked in flakes of chilli and ate it with some cauliflower rice. Honestly, I enjoyed this meal so much!



1 Salmon Fillet

1 tsp Chilli Flakes

2 tsp Sa Va Tu’o’ng Ot

Cauliflower Rice


Pop the salmon fillet in some tin foil and sprinkle the chilli flakes on top. Cook in the oven for about half an hour.

In the mean time, make the cauliflower rice using the recipe here. For this meal I only used chilli, pepper and onion as I was in a rush and this was all I had in the fridge! But typically I would make the whole recipe as it is so damn good, and guilt free too!

The “rice” goes perfectly with the salmon. Once the salmon is cooked, put it on the plate and spread some of the relish on top. I’m so proud of this plate of food and it’s the best meal I’ve had in a few weeks!


If I was making this again, I would cook the salmon in the relish and I would probably use some with chicken or something a bit more adventurous. I really like the idea of having a whole chicken and roasting it with relish on.


I’ve been looking at all the other pickles, chutneys and preserves that Posh Pickles do, so here’s a little wish list of the ones I’m now dying to try!
