Servings 6


  • 4 tbsp good quality fish sauce I use Red Boat, or Three Crabs brand
  • 1 tsp ground dried chili pepper
  • 1 tsp toasted rice
  • 1/2 tsp sugar
  • 1 whole lime juiced
  • 1/2 cup of shallots thinly sliced
  • 1 teaspoon crushed toasted rice


  • Combine all of the ingredients into a small mixing bowl and stir to combine. Taste and adjust any more ingredients for flavor, more pepper if you want it spicier, or a bit more sugar if you want it a bit sweeter.
  • Serve this sauce as a side to any grilled beef, chicken, pork, or sticky rice. The flavors of this is awesome. You get this sweet, tart, spicy note in every bite and it just has you coming back for more. If you are looking for a great dipping sauce, full of flavor, and one that will get you to experience fish sauce, this is the one. I hope you enjoy.
