Hoisin Peanut Butter Sauce for Spring Rolls (Gỏi Cuốn Sauce)

This Hoisin Peanut Butter Sauce goes amazing with Gỏi Cuốn (Vietnamese fresh spring rolls). It’s the authentic recipe I learnt from a lunch lady in Saigon who has been selling Gỏi Cuốn for 30 years.

❤️ Something about Vietnamese Dipping Sauce

Vietnamese people appreciate dipping sauce just as much as the main dish. It’s a norm for each Vietnamese dish to come with its own special dipping sauce, giving it a quaint and well-rounded flavor.

Delicious Vietnamese Bo Bia Spring Rolls: Rice paper rolls filled with Chinese sausages, jicama, and carrots - a perfect blend of flavors and textures.

Nước Mắm Chấm (Vietnamese dipping fish sauce) is the most popular one. It’s versatile; it pairs wonderfully with various Vietnamese dishes, not only fresh spring rolls but also fried spring rolls and even beef noodle salad.

However, there’s another traditional sauce that can bring your spring rolls to new heights of flavor – this Peanut Butter Hoisin Sauce.

Fun fact:

In Vietnamese, Nước Chấm literally means dipping sauce in general. I means it includes any type of sauce used for dipping. Since I found out many Vietnamese dipping fish sauce recipes on the internet labelled at Nước chấm but it’s not corrrect.

When you’re in Vietnam and request Nước chấm at a restaurant, the staff will probably ask, “Which kinds of Nước chấm would you like?” as there are many kinds of Nước chấm in a restaurant. Instead, you should ask for “Nước mắm chấm” or “Nước mắm pha.”

🌟 Helpful Tips

  • If you prepare this for dipping your Gỏi Cuốn , you can use the water previously boiled with shrimps and pork to make Gỏi Cuốn. It will elevate the flavor of the sauce.
  • If your sauce is too thick, thin it out with some water.
  • If your sauce is too thin and already salty enough to your taste, use a cornstarch slurry to thicken it. Avoid overcooking as it may become too salty.
