Is Oyster Sauce the same as Fish Sauce (Nam Pla)?

LKM | Nov 13, 2005 08:08 AM

I'm making a thai curry recipe that calls for fish sauce, but my local grocery only carries oyster sauce (made by an asian food brand). Are the two similar, or would using osyter sauce in place of fish sauce be a bad idea? Thanks!
