Nuoc Cham (Vietnamese Chili Sauce) Preparation
Nuoc Cham (Vietnamese Chili Sauce for dipping) Mince chilies and garlic finely and place in a mortar. Mash with the heel of a cleaver or pestle. Add sugar and stir until it dissolves. Add fish sauce, vinegar and lemon juice, stirring between each addition. This makes enough for 2-4 people. From "Great Asia Steambook" by Irene Wong. Published by Taylor and Ng, distributed by Random House. 1977. ISBN 0-912738- 11-1. Variations: use green serrano chilies instead of dried red ones, lime juice instead of the lemon juice or palm sugar instead of granulated. If you make it in a food processor, dont over process. It should have small chunks of each ingredient rather than being a homogeneous liquid. Fish sauce is a liquid made with anchovies and salt. Its not really fishy tasting. Look for it in the oriental section of supermarkets or at markets catering to Asian clientele. CHILE-HEADS ARCHIVES From the Chile-Heads recipe list.
