Vietnamese Dipping Sauce

Anne Le of Tamarine in Palo Alto, California, shares a CHOW Tip for Vietnamese dipping sauce; here’s the recipe so you can make it yourself.

What to buy: Prawn Brand Fish Sauce is Anne’s preferred brand. It can be found in Asian markets and online.

Sambal oelek is a straight-up chile sauce, without garlic or any other flavors added. It is commonly used in Asian cooking and can be found in the Asian section of your market or online.

Instructions

Combine all ingredients in a small nonreactive bowl, stirring until sugar is dissolved. Let sit about 5 minutes to allow flavors to combine, then add more sugar if necessary.
