These stay incredibly crispy for HOURS after being fried. The wings are coated with golden garlic bits and a sticky sweet savory sauce that will rock every party!
Take these to the next level with our Vietnamese Stuffed Chicken Wings!
When the Internet swarms you with images of people enjoying their Canh Ga Nuoc Mam (also lovingly known as Fish Sauce Chicken Wings), you know it’s time to bring some to your own table.
This is one of those dishes that fits perfectly with a Summer barbecue – searing meat on the grill, fresh salad to go, your family’s best fried rice and a plate of crispy fried chicken wings.
You can actually SEE what sets our recipe apart from all the others. The deeply golden garlic bits hugging each wing and glorious fish sauce caramel turns a humble piece of chicken into a showstopper.
But what you can’t see is what makes our Canh Ga Nuoc Mam truly memorable. The coating seals the juices in so perfectly that every bite is unbelievably succulent and full of classic Vietnamese flavors.
Of all the fried chicken I’ve had, this is my favorite.
Why this recipe works
Marinating the chicken means the marinade penetrates through the meat so you have flavor inside and out.
Using a corn starch and baking powder mix results in a risen and super crunchy batter.
Double frying the wings helps the crisp last hours long!
What you’ll need
For the Marinade
About the garlic seasoning
We chose to use garlic powder instead of fresh garlic so that it would be easier to coat in starch. With chopped garlic, bits might fall off as it cooks.
But if garlic powder isn’t available then fresh garlic is definitely a great aromatic to add.
For the Sauce
About the seasoning
This recipe uses brown sugar for the deeper color and toffee-like sweetness but white sugar will still work well.
For the batter
About the starch
We used corn starch for the coating, but if that’s not readily available then you can substitute it for potato starch or tapioca starch.
How to make this recipe
Marinate the chicken in the garlic powder, chicken bouillon powder, pepper, salt and fish sauce for 20 minutes minimum. Alternatively, make it ahead of time to marinate overnight.
Using a low heat, add the chopped garlic to 2 tbsp cooking oil and let it fry until golden.
Tip: It may be tempting to turn the heat up for a quicker brown, but this could run the risk of burning the garlic. It’s best to keep the temperature low and steady.
Use a zip lock bag to shake and coat the marinated wings in the starch mixture.
Pour the chicken into a colander to shake off any excess.
Add oil into a deep pan or wok and fry the wings on a medium heat for 5 minutes on both sides or until lightly golden brown and cooked.
Set aside to drip dry in a sieve over a bowl.
Bring the heat back up to high and fry the wings for a second time until they develop a deeper golden color.
Use a mortor and pestle to mash the garlic and chili.
Pour 4 tbsp oil in a saucepan and brown the red shallots. Add in the sugar, fish sauce, garlic, chili and water to caramelize for 15 minutes or until it reaches a thick consistency, then stir the lime juice in.
Mix the fried wings back into the sauce and toss until all are coated.
Serve immediately as is!
What can I use if I don’t have corn starch?
There are many substitutes for corn starch, but the one that is often used for the most similar result is potato starch. If that’s not available then arrowroot flour, tapioca flour or rice flour will also work. Just keep in mind that using the latter options might produce a slightly different batter, so experiment as you cook and adjust accordingly.
Yes, you can! Canh Ga Chien Nuoc Mam needs to be given time to cool down and then just put them in a freeze-safe sealed bag or container. They will last for up to 4 months. To cook, simply refry and make the sauce to coat.
Tips for the best results
Double or triple fry the wings. To keep the batter crisp for longer, cook the wings until 80% golden and let it drip dry in a colander. Bring the heat up to fry again until completely golden. You can repeat this for a triple fry.
Coat the wings when they’re still hot. The sauce will seep into the coating much better with a warmer temperature.
Marinate the chicken for longer. Ideally overnight, but the longer you marinate, the better because then every drop of sauce and bit of seasoning penetrates deeper into the chicken.
Get the whole family together with more delicious appetizers!

Vietnamese Fish Sauce Dipping Sauce (Nuoc Cham / Nuoc Mam)
Published: · Modified:
A quick and easy recipe for Vietnamese Dipping Sauce (Nuoc Cham / Nuoc Mam) made with fish sauce with a balance of sweet, sour and salty flavors.
For this Vietnamese Fish Sauce Dipping Sauce (Nuoc Cham / Nuoc Mam) recipe, you can find most of the ingredients at a local grocery store with the exception of fish sauce. If you can’t find fish sauce in the ‘International’ aisle of your grocery store, then you can find it at an Asian grocery store or online – but I highly recommend buying it locally, since fish sauce that has been leaked from a broken bottle during shipping is quite potent and smelly.
Whenever I make Vietnamese Fish Sauce Dipping Sauce (Nuoc Cham / Nuoc Mam), I personally like to use fresh lime juice because of the additional flavor fresh limes give it. However, most Vietnamese dipping sauces made at restaurants usually use white vinegar or rice vinegar, mostly because it’s a lot cheaper to produce. There is absolutely nothing wrong with using vinegar! From time to time I will also use vinegar when I am out of limes at home as well.
SOAK THE GARLIC IN LIME JUICE TO REDUCE THE GARLICKY SPICY BITE
I learned this neat trick through Serious Eats – How to Tame Garlic’s Pungent Flavor. Ah, the beauty of food science! 🙂
This is a completely optional step. If you don’t mind the spiciness and sharp bite from raw garlic then there’s no need to soak the garlic in the lime juice beforehand 🙂
How long you can store this is highly dependent on whether you use vinegar in the sauce. If you are using only fresh lime juice, then I would not keep this for more than a week or two, but is best enjoyed fresh. If there is vinegar in it, you can keep it for about 2 months. Make sure you store it in an airtight jar in the fridge.
DIFFERENT WAYS TO USE NUOC CHAM / NUOC MAM
I like to use this stuff a lot, especially in the summertime so I like to double or triple the batch when I make it. Here are a few things you can serve this with if you have any extra dipping sauce!

Vietnamese Fish Sauce Dipping Sauce: Nuoc Cham / Nuoc Mam · I Am A Food Blog
Every household has their own fish sauce recipe and that’s the way it should be – everyone’s nước chấm tastes slightly different. This particular recipe is based off of my mother-in-law’s fish sauce, which is the best in the world, hands down. Of course, way back in the day, when I asked her how to make it, it was the classic, “a little bit of this, a little bit of that” style teaching that everyone in that generation seems to do. But, she took the time to take me through it step-by-step and now I like to think that my nước chấm would be a very strong contender in a fish sauce throw down. But not a literal throw down because damn, you would not be able to get rid of the smell for days.
Anyway, how you do it, according to my mẹ chồng (that’s mom-in-law in Vietnamese!) is this:
Put a clove of garlic in a mortar and pestle. Pound it lightly and then add a chili and mash them together. Add a biggish handful of sugar and pound them together until the sugar turns pink and is super deliciously spicy and garlic-y smelling. Move the chili-garlic-sugar to a bowl and stir in some water then squeeze in half a lime. Pour in fish sauce until the color is a perfect light amber. Taste and adjust and you’re done!
That’s essentially how I make fish sauce now, but I use the help of measurements so I get the same results every time. This recipe below will make a fish sauce that’s sweet and a little spicy with just the right amount of garlic and lime. Feel free to adjust and play around with the ratios though! Mike thinks my fish sauce is slightly on the sweeter side so when he makes it he dials down the sugar a bit and always adds in an extra chili or two. The most important part is crushing the garlic and chili into the sugar with a mortar and pestle so you get a nice fragrant spicy sugar before mixing in the water and lime. Oh, and you always mix in the fish sauce at the end.
PS – In case you’re interested in, even though I refer to mixed fish sauce as nước chấm in this post, Mike’s family calls it nước mắm, which is what it really should be because nước chấm actually means dipping sauces and can include things like peanut sauce and the like. Nước mắm pha is literally mixed fish sauce and the most well known of the nước chấms. (Picture a blazing rainbow star…. The More You Know)
Crush the garlic, chili and sugar together in a mortar and pestle until the garlic and chili are crushed to tiny pieces and the sugar is spicy and fragrant. Alternatively, you can stir minced garlic and sliced chilis into the sugar. Dissolve the sugar, garlic and chili mixture with the water then add the lime juice. Mix well then add the fish sauce. It’s best to let the fish sauce sit in the fridge for a day or so for the flavors to meld before using, but you can definitely use it right away if you need to.
Notes: This sauce is on the sweet side, which is how I like it, but feel free to play around with and adjust the proportions as you see fit. I’d say start with 2-3 tablespoons of sugar and go from there.
Also, sometimes we like to use more of a slightly thicker more viscous sauce – to do this, simply reduce down the amount of water you add.
Nuoc Cham (Vietnamese Fish Sauce)
This post may contain affiliate links. Please read my disclosure.
Studded with spicy Thai chilies and fresh garlic, this Vietnamese dipping sauce, or Nuoc Cham, is a staple of Vietnamese cooking – plus it’s ready in 5 minutes!
Consisting of fish sauce, garlic, chilies, sugar and lime juice, this sauce is the epitome of Vietnamese flavors – it’s sweet, salty, sour and spicy.
The result is an incredibly flavorful “umami” dipping sauce that is almost drinkable…seriously…it’s that good. Make it ahead and store it in the fridge (in a covered container) as it will last a long time.
There are only a handful of ingredients used here – fish sauce, lime, coconut (or palm) sugar, garlic and chilies.
You can use either coconut sugar or palm sugar for this recipe. I love the flavor of palm sugar personally, but coconut sugar works as well. Buy palm sugar HERE on Amazon ( affiliate link).
Thai chilies can be left out, but I think they impart an incredible spicy flavor to the sauce love to include them. If you can’t find them, you can also thinly slice a serrano pepper and use that.
Fresh lime juice is a MUST. Do not use bottled lime juice or the flavor will be all wrong. I actually almost never recommend using bottled lime juice as the flavor is so different than fresh.
What is Fish Sauce?
Fish sauce is a sauce made from anchovies fermented in salt. While the smell can sometimes be strong, the flavor is out of this world delicious. When added to marinades and sauces, it does not have a fishy flavor as you would expect. It just adds a wonderful savory flavor.
My favorite fish sauce to use is Red Boat 40

Step By Step Instructions
They key to this sauce is getting the flavor balance correct. Whisk together the lime juice, water and sugar until the sugar has dissolved.
**for a sweeter sauce like you find in many restaurant in America, reduce the amount of fish sauce to 5 tablespoons.
Add the chilies and garlic and let it stand for 20 minutes at room temperature before serving. The amount of chilies can be adjusted based on spice preference.
It’s also incredible served as a dipping sauce for these Vietnamese Egg Rolls or these Chicken Summer Rolls.
And if you have simple grilled meat, pork, chicken or even seafood, you can just dip it in this sauce for a boost of flavor.
Adjust the amount of chilies to your spice preference. Remember that Thai chilies can be extremely spicy.
Use warm water to help the sugar dissolve.
Add the fish sauce slowly, tasting along the way, until you get the perfect flavor. You may have to add more/less depending on your preference.
For a sweeter nuoc cham, reduce the amount of fish sauce to 5 tablespoons.
