The soda has just the right combination of citrus and sugar making a nicely balanced fish sauce dipping sauce. Just add fish sauce to your taste and voila, the perfect 7up Vietnamese Fish Sauce Dipping Sauce.
An awesome fish sauce dipping sauce recipe is one everyone should know. It’s a staple condiment accompanying many Vietnamese dishes and is enjoyed as a dipping sauce, marinade, and dressing.

Lemon-lime soda is something I always have on-hand. The chili garlic sauce is another shortcut ingredient. The sauce replaces both chopped fresh red chilies and garlic.
