Vietnamese Fish Sauce

applehome | Feb 3, 2005 03:22 PM

Can I ask some experts what they think of as good brands of this stuff?

I get a "Vietnamese Salad" at my favorite place - and I've tried to recreate this at home. It's just basically a cole slaw with shrimp and chicken, some basil. Obviously, it's the dressing that makes it so great.

I've tried fish sauce with a litle sugar and rice vinegar - I've tried 2 brands of fish sauce. They are both overwhelming - both in saltiness and the strength of the fish flavor. Even a small amount tastes stronger than what I get from the restaurant.

Anybody have any recommendations?

TIA
