Subway backsplash on plywood cabinet side?

Hi All- Can you recommended the best product for setting subway tile on the side of a new cabinet? This is backsplash for a slop sink. Is modified thinset ok here? Most of the backsplash will be backer board but the side is a tall cabinet. Thanks!

I know of no tile setting product that is indicated for use over a hardwood plywood, which is likely what you have there, but it's an application where I would actually favor an organic adhesive rather than a thinset mortar.

What, pray tell, is a "slop sink?"

My opinion; worth price charged.

"Slop sink" is another term for a stationary tub/utility sink usually found in mudrooms or laundry rooms.

Gooanswer on the slop sink! It’s a high end mud room. A stainless under mount-sink and granite counter. Backer board behind, but a tall cabinet encloses the counter about 5 inches away on the left. I want to stick tile directly to that so it isn’t too thick. What is an organic adhesive? It won’t be too splashy in that spot- does everyone think it will be durable if I set tile directly on it as opposed to somehow attaching a thin backer?

Organic adhesive is commonly called mastic, Clark. Comes in a bucket. Says it meets ANSI A136.1.
