    Shake'n'Cake's Note:

    This is the best recipe I've found for this particular dipping sauce, from Tauntons Fine Cooking website. If you prefer it spicier, add half a teaspoon of ground chili paste.

      Excellent dipping sauce! I used it for pork potstickers. Also would be great on noodles like another reviewer said. I will be making this again! Thanks for sharing!

      This works good. My family loves it. We often use prepared fish sauce for salads, Bun, etc. Lately my local Viet market has been out. I made this and everyone loved it. I'll make it again. Thanks for sharing.

      This is the real deal, at least at my favourite Vietnamese restaurants in Toronto. Great on just about everything. When I order a Bunh, I dip my fried spring roll in the sauce then pour it over the noodles. The carrots are essential.
