XO Sauce was invented at the Hong Kong Peninsula Hotel in the 1980s. The seafood sauce is a hodgepodge of unusual, pricey ingredients that requires much skill and time to make. The condiment has since become a staple in southern Chinese cooking, especially in Guangdong Province and Hong Kong.

Named after a bottle of XO (extra-old) Cognac that’s not even used in recipe, the sauce has since become synonymous with Cantonese cooking. In addition to being a popular Cognac Hong Kongers like to drink, “XO” is also a Hong Kong slang denoting something of luxury.
