This 5 flavour steaming sauce is a basic sauce good with most seafood like fish, prawns and squids for dipping or steaming.
It is spicy, sweet, savoury, sourish and very aromatic with the ginger/garlic and spring onions. This sauce tastes much better after resting which means that it can be prepared earlier and stored [for 2 days] until required.
