i recently bought "squid" brand fish sauce, which had been recommended. it is dark in color and unpleasantly strong, salty, and "fishy" tasting. it actually tastes somewhat rancid, if it is possible for fish sauce to get rancid. i previously used another brand, also a thai brand, which name i can't remember, unfortunately, but which i liked very much. now i want to buy another fish sauce, hopefully something somewhat milder. which brand should i buy? do you have a favorite brand that you use? thanks for your suggestions.
