Red Boat Fish Sauce


Red Boat fish sauce is often called the world’s finest fish sauce - a premium store cupboard ingredient for Vietnamese cooking. Made with just two ingredients - wild-caught black anchovies and sea salt from the island of Phú Quốc, Vietnam - this exceptional Vietnamese fish sauce is matured in wooden barrels for one year, producing a super umami yet clean finish, and pungent fish flavours.

Mix the Red Boat fish sauce with a little sugar, fresh red chilli and lime juice to make Nuoc Cham, a popular Vietnamese dipping sauce. Alternatively, add the umami sauce to stir-fries and Pad Thai, drizzle over roasted salmon, or toss through wok-fried green vegetables.

​​The 40N on the label refers to the nitrogen level in the sauce. The higher the number, the higher the nitrogen level. This means more proteins and more intense, complex flavours.
