Low Carb Vietnamese Fish Dipping Sauce. Sometimes I like to make a sauce that is multi-functional and this sauce is one of those times. I first used it as a salad dressing for Vietnamese Shrimp Salad and then realized it was also good to dip other foods into. It is not thick so it will just give a nice coating on whatever you dip into it. Don’t be surprised when the flavor knocks you off your feet because as with all things fish saucy, this does it too. Because I first did it as a salad dressing with shrimp, shrimp is the first thing that came to my dippy mind and of course any kind of vegetable or other meats would work as well. This is very, very easy to put together. Pictured are a plain salad and the salad as a dinner I had last night…with shrimp. I haven’t done it yet but I’m thinking over a piece of good fish would be dandy too.
