Fish Sauce

About This Food

Fish sauce is popular throughout Southeast Asia, and is made from various mixtures based on the liquid from salted, fermented fish.

Extremely pungent and strong-flavored, fish sauce can range in color from ochre to deep brown.  Fish sauce is used as a condiment and flavoring, similar to the way soy sauce is used.

Traditional varieties of fish sauce include: nam pla (Thai), nuoc nam  (Vietnamese), patis (Philippines) and shottsuru  (Japanese).
