So, what is salsa de pescado?

Salsa de pescado is a versatile ingredient in Southeast Asian cuisine that adds a depth of umami flavor and salty taste to dishes. Made from fermented fish, this thick sauce has a pungent aroma and savory profile, making it a popular condiment for dipping, marinating, or seasoning. The amber-colored liquid typically contains chunks of meat and bones, which infuse the sauce with added richness and texture. Salsa de pescado is used in a wide range of dishes, including stir-fries, curries, soups, and stews, and is a staple ingredient in many Thai, Vietnamese, and Filipino recipes.
