Sauce for shrimp rice noodle? (chang/cheung fan)

  • 2

Hoping some kind soul will help me out. I'm a huge dim sum junkie and my favorite item is the shrimp rice noodles (basically a thick sheet of rice noodle, wrapped around shrimp and steamed). The whole shebang is then drizzled with a thin, sweet soy sauce - which is naturally the best part.

I've tried googling a recipe for this sauce with terrible results - does anyone have some insight they can pass along? Thanks!

  1. typically it's just light soy sauce (as opposed to dark). if its sweet, then it might be something particular that particular establishment... i've never seen any other dressing for it otherwise.

    in terms of sweetness, i can imagine hoison sauce or kecap manis (Indonesian soy sauce), but again, those usually aren't served with it.

    1. 1/3 cup Light Soya Sauce
      2 tbsp Granulated White Sugar
      1 tbsp Hoisin Sauce

      I would guess these are the ingredients-play around with it until you find the flavor you like.
