My mom bought a bottle of fish sauce a year ago and left it in the kitchen shelf.
Every time I go into the kitchen the fish sauce will be staring back at me. It’s like saying “You can’t touch me coz you don’t know how to use me!”. Very intimidating aiyoo!
After much thinking, I decided to try using this sauce for my cooking. Aiyo I must tell you… my cooking suddenly taste a lot better leh. Hahaha! I no longer use salt and soy sauce. Fish sauce is all I need.
Cook spinach, use fish sauce.
Cook yee mee, use fish sauce.
Fried mihun, use fish sauce.
Fish sauce is a main condiment use mostly in Vietnamese and Thai cooking. It is made from anchovies, salt and sugar.
I asked my mom yesterday why she bought the fish sauce. Her answer: Beh ki liau loh (can’t remember)
