Finadene sauce

    15 min

    Finadene sauce is a spicy sauce from Guam, used for dipping lumpia or spring rolls, marinating meats, or as a condiment with almost everything (if you are a Pacific Islander!). This gets spicier the longer you keep it.

    This tasted like nothing more than seasoned vinegar. I can't say that we liked it, but I can't give it a bad rating because I always appreciate recipes from other parts of the world and I'm sure this is more of an acquired taste based on region. Thank you for sharing.  -  09 Aug 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Almost as good as I remember from when I was stationed on Guam. I made a few changes...used 2 hot jalapenos and some hirachi sauce (no thai chilis' at the commissary) and added a splash of rice wine vinegar and some fish sauce....if you don't bite on a jalapeno, it is the perfect heat!  -  28 Oct 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    The store didn't have thai chili peppers, so I used serrano peppers, and used a little less garlic. It was very delicious. It says 20 servings but, my husband used it in 2 days! Thanks!  -  08 Feb 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
