This sauce is what I used for basting my nam yee roasted spare ribs, but I think it’s also good on grilled chicken wings…
Nam Yee Sauce 南乳醤 Recipe (this recipe makes enough basting sauce for 3 lbs of meat)
3 tbsp maltose
3 tbsp honey
2 tbsp soy sauce
2 tsp hoisin sauce
1 cube nam yee– mashed
4 tbsp nam yee liquid (the liquid in which nam yee soaked in the jar)
- Combine all ingredients in a small sauce pan, stir to blend well on medium heat until it turns bubbly. Cook for another 2-3 minutes. Set aside to cool. The sauce will thicken when it cools.
- This sauce can be made ahead of time, and stored in the fridge for at least several weeks.
