Hoisin glazed Brussel sprouts

Hoisin sauce is a Chinese dipping sauce. The word hoisin is a Romanization of the Chinese word for seafood as pronounced in Cantonese.

Peking-style hoisin sauce ingredients include starches such as sweet potato, wheat or rice, and water, sugar, soybeans, sesame seeds, white distilled vinegar, salt, garlic and red chili peppers. Traditionally, hoisin sauce is made using toasted mashed soy beans. Despite the literal meaning, hoisin sauce does not contain seafood, nor is it typically used with it. Neither does it contain plums, even though it is frequently misidentified as plum sauce.
