Dim Sim Sauce

Guest Recipe: Dan Johnson’s Nuoc Cham (Vietnamese Dipping Sauce)

Sharing is caring!

A big thank you to Grant’s friend, Dan Johnson, for giving us this amazing Nuoc Cham Vietnamese Dipping Sauce for the Dim Sim Meatballs from The Healthy Mix VI.

We took his original recipe and converted it to Thermomix, but you could easily put this together by hand as well. For the hot heads, feel free to skip deseeding the chillis!

Love Nik xx

Don’t forget we also have this Guest Recipe: Mez’s Dumpling Wrapper (Gluten Free Variation) if you are wanting to add to your Dim Sim Meatballs.
