Stocks & Sauces Recipes

While the food of Vietnam has been influenced to a certain extent by the cooking of the Chinese, it would not be mistaken for Chinese food, for true Vietnamese food has a character and flavor all its own. Instead of using soy sauce, there is the universal use of fish sauce, nuoc mam or nuoc cham, which is added during cooking. Nuoc Man is more pungent than other Southeast Asian fish sauces. If it is not available, add a little dried shrimp paste to Chinese fish sauce for a good substitute. But nuoc mam sauce which is served as an accompaniment with practically everything, is based on nuoc mam with the addition of fresh chilies, garlic, sugar, lime or lemon and vinegar. The flavor is sharper and more pungent than anything the Chinese cuisine has to offer.
