Keep a jar of this sauce in the refrigerator; it will last for a month. You can find ground chile paste (my favorite is Rooster brand) and fish sauce at many supermarkets but always at Asian groceries.

This is a really good basic recipe but there are few little tweaks you can give to this that will really make this sauce an everyday condiment for your table. For one, you can reduce the sauce a bit slowly adding brown sugar to thicken the sauce up, it can then work as a nice glaze for fried fish. Another option is to buy it ready made from restaurants. My website has more recipes as well come check it out www.getsauceynow.com. Check out the blog for recipe ideas and applications. Vietnamese food is really versatile and easy to make at home.
This is the best recipe for Nuoc Cham that I have tried. I make it just like the recipe calls but I cut the sugar in half.
