Why Is Adding Fish Sauce Important to a Dish?

Find out more about fish sauce and why it’s used in certain dishes.

Fish sauce is a Southeast Asian condiment used in various savory dishes. Made from the extracted liquid of fermented fish and salt, it has an amber color and a strong, pungent flavor. It’s often used to season soups, as part of a dipping sauce, or in marinades for vegetables and proteins. Often used sparingly, it boasts a salty, slightly sweet taste that adds tons of flavor.

Fish sauce is used this week in our Lemongrass Pork Patties with Crunchy Tahini Slaw
