Nuoc Cham (spring roll sauce)

Nuoc Cham (spring roll sauce) created by canarygirl

A delicious dipping sauce for spring rolls! I like to put it on pork chops or shrimp too, served over rice. Please Note: The sauce will be very thin. I recommend serving it in individual dishes for each person to dip their spring roll in.

    i know this isnt too authentic, but I added some sesame oil on a whim. It was very good.

    Delicious! Made to go along with your Vietnamese Spring Rolls--a match made in heaven! Very, very easy to make, but packed with flavor!

    Another perfect recipe, cg! As you know I made this to go with your Vietnamese Spring Rolls and the taste could not have been better. I used 1 less pepper because I'm a sissy. I also very easily doubled the recipe, which was good because my family was practically drinking it! We're going to make the rolls and the sauce for my sister's Super Bowl party too. You've made me a better cook today. :-)

    The taste of this was perfect. A little salty, a little spicy, a little garlicky and generally just plain good! It was a bit runny though so watch out if you pour it over your spring rolls, because the sauce quickly runs into everything else on the plate. I'd also suggest halving this recipe, unless you have A LOT of spring rolls. I still have most of mine left. Guess I'll just have to make more spring rolls :-)
