Vietnamese Fish Sauce

Vietnamese Fish Sauce

The Vietnamese use fish sauce to flavour their foods the same way Americans use table salt; it pretty much goes with everything.

  • Yield: 1 serving
  • Prep time: 5 Minutes


  • 1/2 cup(s) Vietnamese fish sauce
  • 1 cup(s) water
  • 1/2 cup(s) sugar
  • 3 tablespoon(s) lime juice
  • 2 clove(s) garlic minced
  • 1/2 teaspoon(s) Asian red chili paste or hot sauce
  • 1/2 carrot chopped


o The 2 towns most noted for their fish sauce are Phu Quoc and Phan Thiet.

Check the label when buying your fish sauce, the "nhi" signifies a high quality sauce.

o Mince your 2 cloves of garlic and chop your 1/2 carrot.

o Combine with the fish sauce, sugar, water, chili paste and lime juice.

o Stir until the sugar dissolves. Makes about 2 cups to serve.
