Lee Kum Kee Plum Sauce
Lee Kum Kee plum sauce is an excellent dipping sauce for roast duck, pork – and even spring rolls. Chinese salted plums are simmered together with sugar to make a rich golden jam – balanced with a hint of sharp rice vinegar, ginger and chilli.
Hong Kong’s favourite sauce brand Lee Kum Kee, or LKK as it’s fondly known, was founded by a chef at a cooked oyster shop in Guangdong village in Shenzhen. In 1888 after leaving a barrel of oysters to ferment, he discovered they created a delicious rich brown liquid – today’s oyster sauce. The company has continued to grow over four generations and is now an award-winning world famous producer.
