Asian Dipping Sauces for fish Burgers

Here as promised.

My  favourite one, usually used for vietnamese spring rolls, but go very well with fish burgers.  I guess I should call them fish cakes, but that word just conjures the images of mashed potato filled goo.

Vietnamese dipping sauce

3 tablespoons lime juice (1 fat, thin skin lime)
2 tablespoons sugar
½ cup water
2 ½ tablespoons fish sauce

1 small garlic clove, finely minced

1 or 2 Thai chilis, thinly sliced (optional )

Mix all until the sugar is dissolved.  The fish sauce is very, very important in this sauce.

Sweet chilli Sauce

1/3 cup sweet chilli sauce

1 Tbs soy sauce

Jamie Olivers Dipping sauce

This is a sauce I got from one of his TV programmes.  He used it for dipping wild game birds into, but it works so beautifully with my fish burgers .

1 orange .  Grate 1/2 and juice the rest

1 lime , juiced.  (I also grate the rind )

5 Tbs oyster sauce

1 tsp honey

pinch salt

Mix together.  It does well with age and keeps well in the fridge.

That is all for now.  I will add some more later.  Just wanted to  get these in quickly, in case someone is wanting to try out the fish or tuna burgers.  Cakes.  Burgers.  Can’t decide !!!
