Join the Flavour-ution with these delicious Oyster Sauce Dishes

Oyster Sauce is often associated with Chinese cuisine, but what many don't realise is how incredibly versatile this inconspicuous bottle of umami goodness is.

The story of Lee Kum Kee’s Oyster Sauce began with a happy accident by our founder, Mr. Lee Kum Sheung in 1888. What he found was a sauce which can cross culinary borders, giving depth and richness to dishes from cuisines around the world. 

If you think Oyster Sauce is just for Chinese or Asian dishes, you're in for a pleasant surprise. This sauce has a place in Italian pasta, American BBQ, and even Middle Eastern stews. Its rich, salty-sweet flavour makes it a versatile addition to a wide array of cuisines..

Fusion cooking becomes an exciting adventure with Oyster Sauce in your pantry. It can blend diverse flavours, turning ordinary dishes into extraordinary culinary experiences. From a traditional Italian Bolognese with a dash of Oyster Sauce for an unexpected twist, to a regular burger transformed by an Oyster Sauce-infused mayo.
