Its been numerous times I have made this and included it in the recipes. Maybe easier to just create a separate post with this recipe so I can refer to it all the time 😉 You can easily make it up front and keep it in the fridge. I always have it ready to make a Bun Cha Gio salad or the Cauliflower salad or as a dipping sauce for the Goi Cuon.
Nuoc Mam dipping sauce
1 chili peper
1 clove of garlic
3 TBsp sugar
4 TBsp fish sauce
5 TBsp warm water
[Otional: 1/2 tsp chili powder]
First start with grinding the chili and sugar together and then add in the garlic.
In a little bowl combine fish sauce, lime juice, water and add in the chili sugar garlic mix.
Taste and add more flavor to your liking.
