High quality and a perfect substitute for patis

  • Jun 5, 2013

This is identical to the the top brands of the Philippine version called patis. It has the same purity and flavor, and can easily compete with my other favorite brand made by Tiparos. I switched to this brand mainly for convenience when I discovered it on a shelf at my local grocery store. That was a shock in itself, but a pleasant one.

I use this - sparingly - on grilled eggplant and zucchini, and to make a hot dipping sauce called nam pra prik. That sauce can be easily made by finely chopping hot peppers (bird's eye chillies are the best) and adding them to this fish sauce.

Although I haven't eaten pork in decades this was a perfect condiment for it when I did. The flavor of mixed grilled or fried vegetables is also greatly enhanced by using a few drops of this in lieu of salt or soy sauce.

Do be aware that this, like patis or other Thai brands, is extremely high in sodium. A single gram of this sauce contains 890mg. That means that a teaspoon contains a whopping 4450mg, so use it very sparingly if you have sodium restrictions.
