Just tried out my new homemade fish sauce that I made with whole sardines, salt, and water, and let ferment for a good few weeks. Husband's reaction "Ewww, that smells so nasty! What did you put in there?!?! What a stench!"
But, he agreed, the taste is pretty fine. Does fish sauce always smell this much? (The main smell came when I boiled the fish sauce to pasteurize.)
Anyone else made fish sauce? Does it stink much more than store bought fish sauce?
