Lee Kum Kee XO Sauce is spicy seafood condiment originating from Hong Kong that is made from dried scallops, dried shrimp, chili peppers, and spices. XO sauce has deep flavor attributed to the tremendous amount of dried seafood. It is intensely umami, fragrant, sweet, smoky, salty, and spicy. XO sauce constitutes luxury as its expensive ingredients make anything that includes it an instant gourmet dish. It is excellent on its own and a perfect complement for other foods.
Uses: XO sauce should be used sparingly as the flavor is very concentrated. Use it as a topping for steamed fish, meat, or vegetables. It can be added into fried rice, noodles, grilled meats, and sauces.
