Simply Delish - Dipping Sauces

Recently, it was my Dad's birthday and he requested a Chinese feast for dinner. Whitesnake and I haven't done much Chinese cooking but I think we did a pretty good job. This week I'm sharing the dipping sauce recipes, I'll share the other dishes we cooked at a later stage.

Asian Dipping Sauces

2 tablespoons chilli powder

This sauce qas quite hot
6 tablespoons fish sauce

6 tablespoons lime juice

2 tablespoons caster sugar

2 red shallots, finely sliced

2 teaspoons finely chopped coriander leaves

The easiest way to prepare the sauce is to mix all the ingredients in a jar and shake.


This was our favourite sauce
 Sweet Chilli sauce

 Sesame seeds or green onions (optional)

 Soy Sauce

Pour soy sauce into a small bowl. The amount should be appropriate to the amount of finger foods you'll be serving.

Whisk in the chili oil. If that doesn't work, try using some type of plastic storage container and shake the ingredients vigorously.

To serve, put the sauce in a small serving dish. Top with sesame seeds or chopped green onions

Nuoc Cham, A Basic Asian Dipping Sauce

• The Vietnamese have a simple dipping sauce that is known for bringing all elements of Asian dishes together, balancing between spicy, sweet, sour and salty.

• Nuoc Cham is the Vietnamese name for this basic sauce.

• In a small bowl, combine 3 tablespoons lime juice, 2 tablespoons sugar and a half-cup water, stirring until the sugar dissolves.

• Adjust the lime juice and sugar to taste. It should balance between sour and sweet.

• Stir in 2 1/2 tablespoons fish sauce and one finely minced garlic clove.

• The color should be a light honey or amber hue for the perfect balance of flavor.

What a great looking feast! Asian cooking is definitely out of my comfort zone. But I'm a saucey kinda gal, so I appreciate all the dipping sauce recipes.

Thanks for hosting!

Thanks so much for sharing the dipping sauce recipes. I like Asian style foods and these recipes will definitely be a bonus to my dishes.

I've shared a cold tomato soup this week in honor of the heat wave.

Have a great weekend,

I love Asian food but don't get to try and make it because the hubs doesn't like it at all. Your sauces sound delicious.
I've shared my recipe on your linky and would love for you to add yours to our linky. =)
