Thai green sauce recipe

Dear reader,
there has been a request for the recipe for the Green Thai sauce that was used on the Smoked Tofu at Tess & Will's wedding. So here I bring it to you with pleasure.

3 tablespoons Soy sauce
1 clove Garlic
1 piece Ginger (approx 2" x 1")
3 tablespoons Dry sherry or Chinese rice wine or sake

1 cup washed & chopped coriander
1 cup washed & chopped basil
1 cup washed & chopped Thai holy basil
1/2 tin coconut milk
2 teaspoons ground turmeric
2 teaspoons ground coriander
A piece of Galangal about 2" long x 1" wide
2 stalks lemon grass, softer white part only (finely chopped)
2 tablespoons soy sauce
Rind from 2 limes (finely grated)
3 lime leaves (finely shredded)
1 teaspoon sesame oil
2 cloves garlic

Bung all the greenery into a magimix & whizz. Add the rest of the ingredients & whizz again until a paste.
Put a dessertspoon of paste onto a slice of smoked tofu (previously marinated), wrap in banana leaves & barbecue for about 15 minutes.
Serve with rice & papaya salad
Mmmmmmm. Impress all your friends.
