    What's in fish sauce?

    I just ordered a sandwich that has fish sauce in it.  What ingredients are in fish sauce. It doesn't sound good, but the sandwich was tasty.

    It is made from little fish that are salted and fermented... yes, rotting fish. I associate it with Thai food, but I think there is a version of it that goes back to Roman times.

    Rochelle Frank is absolutely correct; the Romans were the ones who invented fish sauce but South East Asia is where most of it comes from now. My wife is from Cambodia and she uses it to cook all the time. Here is a list of ingredients:

    Anchovy Extract, water, salt, fructose, and hydrolyzed vegetable protein.

    1 Tbsp. Contains approximately 1800 mg or 75% Sodium, 2g or 1% total carbohydrate, 2g of sugar, and 2g of protein.

    This is one particular brand and I have seen other brands with slightly different numbers and sometime use different kinds of fish. I hope that this answers your question!

    Fish sauce is often used in Oriental dishes as flavoring. Although MSG is also abundant in Americanized Oriental dishes, I for one have to ensure before ordering that they substitute MSG with Oyster Sauce, it acts as a great food taste enhancer and does not leave one feeling sweaty or dizzy from the often side effects of MSG. I have a Chinese friend who owns his own Chinese restaurant and he does not cook with MSG ever. He uses fish oils and Oyster sauce is the popular one. Hope this helped, now go enjoy Oriental dishes, they are some of my favorites.
