Fish Sauce, 40ºN
Fish sauce is an almost indispensable umami ingredient in Far East, particularly in Thailand, Vietnam, Cambodia, and the Philippines. Used properly in cooking, you are unlikely to taste it specifically in the finished dish, but it will enhance and deepen the flavours as a whole. In addition to its use in cooking, it is often used as a table sauce, particularly in combination with citrus, chiles, garlic and other aromatics. All-natural Red Boat Brand is very expensive and astonishingly good.
