7up Vietnamese Fish Sauce Dipping Sauce – Shortcut Recipe (Nuoc Mam Cham)

Fish sauce dipping sauce is a staple in the Viet diet.  It’s like our ketchup.  It’s often used as a marinade, dipping sauce, condiment and more.  My sister tosses it in her salad because it’s a nice vinaigrette.

This recipe is even easier than most versions because I have a shortcut.  I use 7up (or Sprite) to add an interesting twist while maintaining the traditional flavors.

Watch the video below for instructions.


1 cup water
1 cup 7up (or Sprite) soda
3 Tbsp fish sauce (nuoc mam)
1 Tbsp lemon (or lime) juice
1/2 tsp garlic chili paste


Combine all ingredients in a medium bowl.   Allow 30 minutes for fizz in soda to deflate before serving.

Enjoy with your favorite spring rolls, eggs rolls and many other dishes!

Yields:  2 1/4 cups
