“Meishi takes you on a journey through the Orient by bringing you authentic ingredients for use in your traditional recipes. Experience a new range of products with Meishi. Meishi Hoisin sauce is a thick, fragrant sauce commonly used in Cantonese cuisine as a glaze for meat, an addition to stir fry, or as dipping sauce. It is darkly-coloured in appearance and sweet and salty in taste. Although regional variants exist, hoisin sauce usually includes soybeans, fennel, red chili peppers, and garlic. Vinegar, five-spice powder and sugar are also commonly added. The word hoisin is derived from a shortening of the Chinese words for “seafood sauce”, although the sauce does not contain any seafood ingredients and is not commonly consumed with seafood. The reason for the name is “seafood flavour”, a common adjective in Chinese cuisine, especially Sichuanese. The key ingredient of hoisin sauce is fermented soybean paste. Hoisin sauce can be used as a marinade sauce for meat such as char siu. Hoisin sauce can be used as a dipping sauce for steamed or panfried rice noodle roll. In Vietnamese, hoisin sauce is called tương đen. It is a popular condiment for phở, a Vietnamese noodle soup, in southern Vietnam. The sauce can be directly added into a bowl of phở at the table, or it can be used as a dip for the meat of phở dishes. In phở, hoisin is typically accompanied by Sriracha sauce.

Meishi hoisin sauce is also used to make a dipping sauce for Vietnamese spring roll and other similar dishes. In cooking, it can be used for glazing broiled chicken.
