Spicy Garlic Fish Sauce Dipping Sauce


Great sauce for fresh spring rolls, for Banh Xeo (Savory Vietnamese Fried Crepes), vietnamese rice noodle salad with vermicelli rice noodles with lettuce and asian herbs with grilled chicken, pork, beef or seafood that you can find at a lot of vietnamese restaurants and many other vietnamese dishes. Some people use honey as the sweetener or white sugar as the sweetener but here I used coconut sugar which gave it a darker caramel color to the sauce.

Coconut Sugar   7 tablespoons   (or Regular Sugar   4 tablespoons)

Garlic   5 cloves chopped

Fresh Chili Peppers   5+  depending on spicy preference

This fish sauce doesn’t have a strong taste and smell to it like other brands (No MSG & Gluten Free, No Color Added, & No Flavor Added)

Fish Sauce   1/2 cup

Fresh Lime Juice   2/3 cups

Water   1 cup


Lets Get Started:

Combine everything in a bowl and mix it well.

Do a taste test to see if you need to add any more sugar or fish sauce. Everyone has different taste so season to your liking.

I hope you like it.
