Why we chose this: Dependability. It’s exactly what you want from a versatile hoisin sauce - overall sweet but sufficiently offset by savoury notes and a smidgen of spice. A Cantonese sauce from a longstanding Hong Kong brand.

A staple condiment if you will, it is a must-have for Cantonese cooking and other southeast Asian fare too.

This dark, thick mostly sweet but also savoury paste has a versatility second to none. It is equally respected as a marinade and as a condiment for during and after cooking. 

The base of hoisin sauces are primarily fermented soybean, sweetened with sugar and finessed with multiple spices including chilli and garlic. Although “hoisin” means seafood in Cantonese the name is said to be derived from it being used to flavour seafood though some older recipes actually called for dehydrated and fermented seafood as a minor ingredient to add an umami lift. Keeping in with the times, this Lee Kum Kee version is indeed vegan friendly.

Taste: Mostly sweet but partly savoury, think bbq sauce without smoke.

Uses: Marinate and/or stir fry crustaceans, meats, faux meats; use as a dipping sauce for rice paper rolls, roast duck, roast pork, steamed fish, steamed chicken; use as condiment for both soup and dry noodles.
