How to Use Different Ingredient Sauces

At Asian Home Gourmet, we offer you a wide range of ingredient sauces, including soy and chilli sauces, fish sauce and coconut cream powder. With so many different types of sauces, it is easy to get confused with how to best use them. Take a look at the various ways these sauces can be used to enhance your dishes. 

 Thai Hot Chilli Sauce

Our Thai hot chilli sauce is ideal for any spice lover to use as a dipping sauce. This sauce can also be used to spice up your chicken and meat dishes, giving it that little extra kick. Make sure you're prepared for the added heat though - it isn't for the faint hearted!

Fish Sauce

When cooking a lot of Asian dishes, our fish sauce will come in handy. This sauce is ideal for marinating, stir fries and is also commonly used as a dipping sauce in many Asian cuisines. The sauce is an amber-coloured liquid that is extracted from the fermentation of fish and is mixed with sea salt to produce a unique and delicious flavour. 

Coconut Cream Powder

Coconut cream powder is the perfect addition to many curries, and is traditionally used in Asian recipes in replacement of the use of regular milk or cream. With a smooth, thick and rich consistency once water is added, coconut cream powder is perfect for thickening up dishes with less fat and calories, as well as making them milder for those who can't handle the heat.

Be sure to check out our whole range of different sauces to make sure you're getting the most out of your Asian flavours and dishes.
