Give Fish Sauce a Try

Related To:

Don't be scared off by a recipe that calls for fish sauce. It smells pungent, but you won't detect any fishiness in your dish — just a rich, salty, almost meaty flavor. Fish sauce can be used in more than just Asian dishes: Add a splash to tomato sauce or whisk some into salad dressing. Just remember that a little goes a long way.
