What Is Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce And How Do You Cook With It?
Even if you’ve never bought a bottle of Golden Mountain Seasoning Sauce, you’ve probably tasted it since it has been a popular ingredient in Thai cooking since 1954. Made with soybean sauce, sugar, and a secret flavor enhancer, this special sauce hits all the different types of taste buds, adding a rich mix of salty and sweet to any dish.
Golden Mountain is such a prominent ingredient in Thai cuisine that sometimes it will simply be listed as Thai seasoning sauce in recipes. It's an important part of nam jim jaew, a Thai dipping sauce, and it also works well in marinades for meat, such as beef, chicken, and pork; it can also enhance the flavor of seafood, such as shrimp or tuna.
This seasoning sauce amps up the flavor of vegetarian dishes, such as red curry with tofu, gives Thai stir-fry its distinctive taste, and is a good substitute for fish sauce in dishes such as pad thai and pad kee mao, or drunken noodles. If you want to try Golden Mountain for yourself, check your local Asian specialty market or online retailer.
