  1. Start by cleaning the shrimp by adding shrimp and salt in a bowl and giving them a good massage even if you buy them frozen (thaw first)
  2. Marinate the shrimp with fish sauce, Me’s Way Chilli Sauce, stock powder, sugar, black pepper, half of the minced garlic and half of white onion for at least 1 hour or overnight in fridge for best results.
  1. In a large skillet, heat the vegetable oil on medium high.

Me’s Way Vietnamese Chilli Sauce : Review

About Me’s Way:

Hand-crafted for three generations, made from scratch with locally sourced, natural ingredients, prepared in small batches so the flavors fuse and deepen. Each bite evokes a rich history of family, tradition, and love that makes passing Mẹ’s Way around the table special.

The Delivery

As you may have seen I tried making my own chilli sauce, and it turned out ok.

Me’s Way contacted me and asked if I would like to try their Chilli sauce which is a family recipe and I said yes.

Visually this is great branding in my opinion as the colours and design just stand out.

I opened the lid and took a smell, ohhh this was sooo nice its difficult to describe apart from mmmmmm I think that sums it up.

The Chilli Sauce

This 100% looks much better than mine and smells really good.

I tried a very very small amount from the jar, just as it is on a spoon and WOW this had a good strong kick but after that initial kick the amazing flavours come through and mmmm so good.

I decided I would make something and use it in the recipe to add a little kick and this lovely flavour.

I made Vietnamese chilli meatball lettuce wraps (recipe soon), and used the Me’s Way chilli sauce in the meatball mix.

The end result was very very tasty, and I can’t wait to use this more in some upcoming recipes.

Overall :

Firstly a big thank you to Me’s Way for the chilli sauce, and introducing me to a new and wonderful chilli sauce.

The recipe for my Vietnamese chilli meatball lettuce wraps will be posted soon, so order this sauce so you have it ready for my recipe.

I highly!!! recommend this, so please do check them out and order some I promise you will love it.

A solid 5/5 rating from me.
