While I give recipes for how to make Nuoc Mam Cham (Vietnamese Fish Sauce Dipping Sauce), I hardly ever make my own.
Because my mom made enough to supply me for the next year, or two, or three. Yes, folks, this is a 56-ounce container of sweetened fish sauce. That's 3.5 pounds to pour over every conceivable dumpling, savory crepe, or rice paper roll.
Don'tcha love Vietnamese mamas? I know I love mine. :)
