Author Notes: I've included two popular dipping sauces here: fish sauce-based sauce and a hoisin peanut sauce. Like the spring rolls, these dipping sauces are highly customizable according to taste and restaurants will often have their own signature sauce. Betty | le jus d'orange

For the fish sauce dipping sauce:

  • 3 tablespoons fish sauce
  • juice of 1 lime
  • 3 tablespoons sugar, or to taste
  • 1/2 tablespoon minced ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon thinly sliced fresh Thai chiles
  • 1/3 cup water
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  1. Mix together all of the ingredients and refrigerate. Store for 1 day prior to serving in order to let the chile flavor infuse.
