Lee Kum Kee XO Sauce, 220g


XO sauce is noted for its ability to deliver an umami-rich hit to Chinese food. Made from dried shrimps, scallops and chillies, it is a textured condiment with a distinctive savoury flavour. The phrase ‘XO’ implies costly and luxurious. Traditionally, Hong Kong restaurants each made their own version of XO sauce, keeping their recipes a closely guarded secret. Serve it as a dipping sauce with dim sum dumplings or use it in stir-fried dishes such as fried rice.

Lee Kum Kee was founded by a cook from Guangdong village who discovered oyster sauce in 1888. Known for the range and quality of its Chinese sauces, the company is now a global brand, widely used in Chinese restaurants around the world.
