Jenny, that's what I was thinking too. I would imagine that unless you have been using fish sauce all your life, then you won't know if it's bad or not.


Has anyone ever tried fish sauce & sugar w/ granny smith apples? (use the sauce/sugar and dip apple wedges) We used to eat that ask kids for an after school snack, MAN, is it good. Though imagine it may be too strong for most.

Well, I looked at the label again ... it was actually "Fish sauce - Shrimp formula" ... made like fish sauce but from shrimp extract (70%), salt (28%), sugar (2%). And, it was from Thailand - I was even able to find a reference to the company on the internet.

I tried some on some noodles and it tasted just great! My son and DIL found out I had it and .. well ... they have it now.

Robb969 - seems you live in my area - I got it from the Asian market on Belknap over there in Haltom City.

Does anyone here ever use fish sauce only as a dipping sauce? If you have the Vietnamese sour gumbo type soup, we use straight fish sauce to dip the fish. yum yum yum.

I use it as an ingredient for the most part.

I'm quite partial to the flavour of a good fish sauce by itself.

But mostly as an ingredient to red/green/panang and mussaman curries and that fantastic Thai concoction nuoc cham.

The big one (Used to be Winn Dixie) Or the little one in Vietnam Square? I live over on Hulen, and eat Viet at least twice a month... Sometimes a lot more :)

Michael The Sauce (Shrimp cira 1991) That I have here is still good. Or at least I am not dead yet..It does stain the glass and leave a little sediment but as "fish" sauces go, most foam out of the top and down the sides with a thick mass inside floating ontop. Thats the fresh stuff..Or at least here in little Veit Nam (Haltom city, TX)

I have some fish sauce with bird chilis in it (like in the condiment tray at the restaurant) that I use sort of straight up.

Me loves fish sauce!

Speaking of dipping, we eat banana peppers from the garden dipped in Korean kojujang
