by Chef Mikel Anthony

This recipe is part of the Chef’s Roll Test Kitchen.

Nuoc Mam

  • 1/2 cup Warm to hot water
  • 1/2 cup Sugar
  • 1/2 cup Red Boat fish sauce
  • juice from 1 lime
  • approx. 1/4 cup Sliced garlic
  • 1/4 cup Sliced Thai chili
  1. Melt sugar with warm to hot water and add in fish sauce, lime juice, garlic, and Thai chili.
  2. Let set or cool under refrigeration.
  3. For tomato salad: Slice desired amount of heirloom tomatoes. I chose different sizes and colors to make the plate pop. Spoon over Nuoc Mam. Garnish with some mint

Note: If serving this dish I suggest keeping the Nuoc Mam on the side and allowing the guest to over desired amount.
