This sauce complements most vietnamese popular dishes; spring rolls, imperial rolls, steamed fish, fried fish, grilled meats....and the list goes on and on.
My family and I cannot live without this sauce, unless we were to completely rule out vietnamese food out of our lives. Oh - what a huge nightmare that would be.
