This is another of Vietnamís delicious sauces. It is sweet, tangy and slightly spicy and goes well with grilled seafood, particularly grilled fish.
Eat this dish with rice and the popular Vietnamese Side Salad.
If you would like to try some other Vietnamese dipping sauces, there is also the famous Nuoc Mam Cham , dipping sauce which is lighter in texture and which also uses fish sauce for its base.
