So, what is fishsauce?

Fish sauce is a pungent, salty liquid condiment made by fermenting salted fish, usually anchovies, in brine. It is an essential ingredient in Southeast Asian cuisine, particularly in Thai, Vietnamese, and Filipino dishes. The sauce has a complex umami flavor profile that adds depth and richness to savory dishes. It is often used as a seasoning for marinades, stir-fries, dipping sauces, and dressings. Fish sauce is also a good source of protein and essential minerals like calcium and phosphorus. However, its potent aroma and strong flavor can be overwhelming if used in excess, so it should be used in moderation.
