Question for all the Thai Food geniuses out there

borisabrams | Apr 19, 2014 03:19 PM

Hi there!
So, in a momentary lapse of judgement I brought a bottle of Fermented Thai Fish Sauce. Not the good old Squid Brand fish sauce that we see all over the place. Rather, a jar of cloudy fermented pickled gourami sauce. I remember seeing it a couple of times in David Thompson's book, and have mainly come across it as an condiment to Som Tam.

Has anyone had any experience using this stuff? Can it be eaten raw? Would it be nice as as a sub. for shrimp paste/regular fish sauce in a Thai Curry?
Not quite sure what to do with it!
Ps. This is the product I brought:
(its 80% gourami and 20% anchovy fish - so not the pure Pla Ra)
