XO Sauce -
XO sauce, originally created by Lee Kum Kee, a famous brand of Chinese sauces is an all purpose gourmet condiment made from ingredients such as dried shrimp, dried scallop, red chili pepper and spices. It is called so because it contains high-quality ingredients, and it is so delicate and special. It doesn't contain any XO, but it is believed that XO sauce is the finest sauce, just like people think that XO is the finest liquor. It is a delicious appetizer by itself, as well as an excellent addition to all dishes, Chinese dim sum, noodles, porridge and Japanese sushi. XO Sauce is also ideal for cooking meats, vegetables, seafood, tofu, fried rice and even pasta. XO Sauce is a little bit hot and spicy; on the other hand, there is Extra-Hot XO Sauce too.
