This is the best fish sauce we've found with a price tag just right for making kimchi. Red Boat is pure, 100% all natural, first press “extra virgin” Vietnamese fish sauce. Made from only two natural ingredients, fresh wild caught anchovy and sea salt, it is free from added water, MSG, and preservatives. It's hard to find a simple ferment like this.
The quality of fish sauce is determined by protein levels. No other fish sauce has a natural protein content higher than Red Boat 40°N. Packed with B vitamins and minerals, the extra-rich protein content gives Red Boat a unique character and savoury flavour - also a little sweet and you may even feel like sipping it. Not smelly - rather a very sophisticated aroma. We are big fans.
