Excellent! Very authentic.
Needs some lime juice, otherwise good! THanks for posting (^o^)
The best sauce for dipping my Lumpia in. This was better than the restaurant sauce Thank you for posting recipe
This is a great recipe-my favorite I have made so far. I did make one change. I added the juice of a small lime along with the fish sauce.
I don't have a reference point for this stuff, because I've never eaten it before, but I think I could drink this stuff! I used this as the dressing for Beck D's Bun Bo (Grilled Lemongrass Beef Noodle Salad) #151139, and it was perfect together! Thanks for posting!
Finally, a nuoc cham recipe I'm happy with! This really does taste just like the ones at our favourite Vietnamese restaurants and was so easy to make too. I cut my thai chilli into long thin strips and also added some shredded white raddish and carrot to the mix - thank you so much for posting this great recipe!
Tastes just like the nuoc mam cham in vietnamese restaurants. I prefer to add shallots with the garlic to give the sauce some kick.
I have a friend that immigrated to the US from Vietnam over 40 years ago. I got to visit him and his new wife a few years ago, and got to make and consume authentic summer rolls, with nuoc mam. This was super, super close to as good as hers (I can't say it was as good because I'm biased). :) Thanks for bringing back some fond memories.
Mellowpuff knows her Nuoc Mam,,you cannot make any Nuoc Mam without lime..if not lemon. Other than that the recipe is 90% there. I like that it's very simple for anyone. If you have good authentic egg rolls, the ones with the rice paper you find in Vietnamese/Pho restaurants a small bowl of this is a MUST to dip in when wrapped in some red leaf or butter lettuce. You be amazed how much a simple egg roll could be transformed with some simple lettuce and some fish sauce and lime.
Very easy to make! I added more fish sauce to taste! =)
