    Ambervim's Note:

    There are numerous Nouc Cham sauces on this site. This one is really good. A big difference is simmering the first set of ingredients. I went to a local Vietnamese restaurant and they confirmed how important the cooking is to the flavor development. I found this recipe on Youtube. If you want to watch 2 guys make it, go to I indicate my preference and added the shredded carrots for serving.

    Units: US | Metric


    Add after cooled in fridge 2-3 hours

    • sambal chili sauce (Thai Chilis, Jalapeno or Red pepper flakes could also be used) or chopped fresh serrano chili (Thai Chilis, Jalapeno or Red pepper flakes could also be used)
    • 1 lime juice (lemon too is great)
    • 3 -4 teaspoons garlic, chopped

    Upon Serving


    1. 1
      Place the simmered ingredients in a pot and bring to a simmer. Do NOT out and out boil, just bring to a gently simmmer.
    2. 2
      I prefer to use chilis that have seeds and stems removed. Finely slice or maybe chop them. I find it has a smoother, cleaner taste. Vary the amount based size of chili, heat and your preference. Think 1 average size jalapeno for this size batch.
    3. 3
      After cooling, add the chilis, juice of 1 lime (adding a little lemon will make it even better) and the finely chopped garlic.
    4. 4
      If it is too salty for you add a little water or lemon or lime juice to taste.
    5. 5
      Serve in shallow bowls with some shredded carrots.
    6. 6
      It is wonderful for spring rolls and great on Bun or wherever Nouc Cham is requested.
    7. 7
      It will keep in the fridge for a fe months.
