One of the essential ingredients in Vietnamese cuisine is fish sauce and we spotted the Red Boat 40N Fish Sauce in Costco Fremont this past week.
This highly rated fish sauce has only 2 ingredients – anchovy and sea salt. There’s no added water, sugar, color, or MSG, etc.
Only the first press is bottled.
We have excellent Vietnamese food in the bay area but I do attempt to cook it once in a while. I’ve only used the normally-recommended Three Crabs brand until this year when I purchased a small bottle of the MegaChef brand to try. It doesn’t smell as strong as the Three Crabs so I do prefer it.
Now, I’ll probably purchase a bottle of the Red Boat to try as well. I’m curious to see how it compares with the MegaChef bottle. Only issue is it’ll probably take years to finish my supply of fish sauce!
