This is your simple nuoc cham recipe with an extra kick from fresh ginger. It’s perfect to brighten up poultry and fish dishes. This recipe usually makes enough sauce for four servings of simple dishes.

Ingredients

  • 4 clove garlic, minced
  • tablespoons sugar
  • 1 teaspoon chili paste
  • ¼ cup minced fresh ginger
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lime juice
  • ¼ cup fish sauce
  • cup water

    Method

    In a small bowl, whisk together all the ingredients until the sugar is dissolved. Leave the bowl at room temperature for a few hours to let the sauce marinate. As with dipping sauce, it is best to refrigerate if you are not planning to serve it within 24 hours.
