Vietnamese Dipping Sauce

Truly transformative when you put a spoonful of this delicious Nuoc Cham dipping sauce into Pho or Noodle Soup. Something really good turns into something truly amazing...


  • 1 teaspoon of fresh Ginger
  • 1 tsp Red Chilli
  • 1 Clove Garlic
  • 2 tablespoons of Lime Juice
  • 2 tablespoons of Fish Sauce
  • 1 tablespoon of Sugar
  • 2 tablespoons of Water

This is a recipe from Rick Stein’s Far Eastern book

Very finely chop 1 teaspoon of fresh Ginger, 1 tsp Red Chilli and 1 Clove Garlic

In a bowl, mix the chopped Ginger, Chilli and Garlic with 2 tablespoons of Lime Juice, 2 tablespoons of Fish Sauce, 1 tablespoon of Sugar and 2 tablespoons of Water

Leave in the fridge for a bit before serving (so all the flavours come together)

Best served with Pho or Noodle Soup, but isn’t bad as a dipping sauce for Kebabs…
