Hoisin Sauce on Wikipedia:

Hoisin sauce Hoisin sauce from Hong Kong in a 200-milliliter squeeze bottle Chinese name Simplified Chinese 海鲜酱 Literal meaning seafood sauce Transliterations Mandarin - Hanyu Pinyin hǎixiānjiàng Cantonese - Jyutping hoi2 sin1 zeong3 - IPA =hɔɪ35 sɪn55 tsœŋ35 Vietnamese name Vietnamese tương đen

Hoisin sauce, or Haixian Sauce, is a Chinese dipping sauce. The word Hoisin is a romanization of the Chinese word for seafood ``æµ·é®®`` as pronounced in Cantonese.



Mandarin-style Hoisin sauce ingredients include water, sugar, soybeans, white distilled vinegar, rice, salt, wheat flour, garlic, and red chili peppers, and several preservatives and coloring agents. Traditionally, Hoisin sauce is made using sweet potato. Despite the literal meaning of ``seafood,`` Hoisin sauce does not contain fish.



A number of Chinese cuisine dishes such as spring rolls, mu shu pork, popiah and barbecued pork use the sauce. It is especially common for Cantonese cuisine flavoring.[1]


Hoisin sauce is also a popular condiment for phở; the sauce can be directly added into a bowl of phở by the diner, or can be used as a side dip for the meat of phở dishes. The sauce is also used for glazing broiled chicken.
