Low-Carb Recipes Using Fish Sauce (and Red Boat Fish Sauce)
Fish Sauce is a flavorful ingredient to add that extra something to Asian dishes, and it’s also an easy replacement for anchovies for recipes that include them. I’ve been a long-time fan of Red Boat Fish Sauce, and here’s a great collection of Low-Carb Recipes Using Fish Sauce!
Years ago I started hearing a lot of talk about Red Boat Fish Sauce, and when I saw it in a new market in Salt Lake, I had to try it.
Some of the buzz surrounding Red Boat Fish Sauce comes from the fact that it contains only fresh caught wild black anchovies and sea salt, making it Paleo and Whole 30 approved. But if you like the umami-laden flavor of fish sauce, for me the main reason to spend a bit more for this brand is for the taste, which is amazingly smooth and has just the right combination of fishy-salty flavor notes. Fish sauce is not something you use in huge amounts, so for me it’s worth the money for a fish sauce that tastes this good.
