So, what is fish paste?

Fish paste is a savory ingredient that has been used in Asian cuisine for centuries. It is made by blending fish meat, usually anchovies, with salt and other seasonings to create a thick, smooth paste. Fish paste has a strong, pungent flavor and a distinctive aroma that can add depth and complexity to dishes. It is commonly used as a base for soups and stews, as a condiment for rice dishes, or as a flavor enhancer for stir-fried vegetables and meats. Its versatility and rich umami flavor make fish paste a popular ingredient in many traditional Asian dishes, and it is increasingly finding its way into global cuisine.
