Kalyn’s Kitchen Picks: Three Crabs Fish Sauce
I love the the Umami flavors that fish Sauce adds to Asian Foods and for many years now Three Crabs Fish Sauce has been one of my two favorite brands.
I’m not an expert on Asian ingredients, so years ago when I ran across a post touting Three Crabs Fish Sauce on a blog called The Perfect Pantry, I was more than happy to listen to Lydia’s fish sauce recommendations. Shortly after that my step-sister Karyn asked me what I wanted from San Francisco and I requested a bottle of Three Crabs Fish Sauce.
Then I discovered I could buy it at several Asian markets in Salt Lake, and now it’s one of only two fish sauces I buy. The fun side note to this fish sauce success story is that I also became good friends with Lydia from The Perfect Pantry and now we e-mail often to discuss all things blogging.
For those who aren’t familiar with fish sauce, it’s an ingredient used in Thai and Vietnamese cooking to add a salty flavor to the food. The smell is a little intense, but a small amount of this in a sauce or salad dressing really transforms the flavor to something memorable. I’ve been a fish sauce fan ever since I first tried Thai food years ago, but since I discovered this brand I’ve been using fish sauce a lot more often.
