Fish sauce is as ubiquitous to Vietnamese cuisine as salt is to western cuisine and soy sauce is to Chinese cooking. Here it is seasoned with other ingredients to give a sweet and sour flavor.
- 3 cloves garlic
- 1 cup water
- 4 tablespoons lime juice
- 4 tablespoons sugar
- 2/3 cup fish sauce
- 1/2 to 1 teaspoon red chili paste (as desired)
- Optional: thinly sliced carrot
- Finely mince the garlic
- In a small bowl, combine all the ingredients until the sugar dissolves.
