How to Make Fish Sauce?

The combination of fish with salt leads to the fermentation process that produces fish sauce, and Southeast Asia relies heavily on it as a part of their diet. The sauce works well as a flavour enhancer for ramen, marinades, and french fries. You can discover many variations of the sauce on the internet, but the one I make has never failed to please everyone in my family and circle of friends.

The recipe may need some time, but it will be well worth your patience.

Fish Sauce Nutrition Facts

Fish Sauce

Fish sauce is naturally fermented through the ageing process of fish and salt, and several amino acids are produced during the hydrolysis process. In particular, amino acids are broken down into smaller bits by the enzyme system found in fish intestines, which makes it easier for your body to absorb them directly.

Studies have shown that the five essential amino acids for the body, valine, Isoleucine, phenylalanine, methionine, and lysine, are present in traditional fish sauce.
