Something on the side

On the side

A plate of Iceberg Lettuce with Beanshoots, Cucumber, Herbs and Nuoc Cham went really well with the Gai Yang Chicken. Super refreshing.

Nuoc Cham
(While not a Chin Chin recipe, they do serve this classic Vietnamese dipping sauce at the restaurant accompanied by these greens.)
1/4 cup water
1/4 cup fish sauce
2 tbsp lime juice
2 tbsp rice wine vinegar
1 tbsp finely chopped palm sugar
1/2 stem lemon grass, pale section only, finely chopped
2 long fresh red chillies, finely chopped (deseeded if you like)
1 garlic clove, crushed

Combine the water, fish sauce, lime juice, vinegar, palm sugar, lemon grass, chilli and garlic in a jug and stir until the sugar dissolves. Serve.
