Fish sauce is an extensively used ingredient in traditional Thai cooking, known as Nam Bplah in Thailand which literally means "fish water". Fish sauce is produced by extracting the juices from fresh fish after they are salted and left to ferment.
Natural fish sauce may be harder to find than many varieties available on the shelves, which may be diluted and flavoured with caramel, sugar, MSG and artificial flavours. Good quality fish sauce should be clear and reddish brown in colour.
Note: Natural fish sauce may have little or no glutamate, and lower levels of amines and salicylates.
Once bottle is opened, store in the refrigerator.
