Nuoc Cham

All of our delicious NUOC CHAM Recipes are authentic and incredibly simple. We recommend you cook 2 -3 recipes to be enjoyed with a side of steamed rice with 4-6 people to truly embrace the traditional Vietnamese dining culture.

  • Chicken Wings (Ga Chien) - As an appetizer or as a side dish with rice and vegetables, you won't be able to just have a few. Add a few red chili's to spice things up!
  • Crispy Fish (Ca Chien) – with wilted greens - Wonderful recipe to serve whole fish this way. The fattier the fish, the more splendid the compliment of flavours from our NUOC CHAM.
  • Noodles (Bun) - Simply delicious. Boiled, stir-fry, hot or cold, Nuoc Cham works it's magic with any kind of noodle. Feel free to adapt this recipe to suit your families tastes and preferences.
  • Rice & Egg (Com Trung) – Cabbage Salad - This recipe is simply divine. Our NUOC CHAM elevates the humble egg to spectacular heights! You can add a variety of other toppings such as pickled vegetables, grilled & poached meats to your rice bowl for an incredibly healthy and quick meal.
  • Spot Prawns & Penne Pasta w/ Basil Roasted Eggplant - A simply luscious and elegant dinner just for the two of you. A west coast favourite, the spot prawn pairs well with the subtle bitterness of the eggplant, and our delicious Nuoc Cham sauce brings it all together!
  • Spring Roll (Cha Gio) - Paired up with our NUOC CHAM, your appetizer of spring rolls and dip will be the talk of the party!
  • Spring Rolls & Lettuce Wraps (Cha Gio Rau Cuon) - Buy pre-made spring rolls from your local grocer, bake/fry them as directed, add fresh & seasonal leaf lettuces, herbs, vegetables and devour to the last bite. If you're feeling inspired, follow our easy recipe for home-made spring rolls for the full benefits of a home cooked meal.
