Dear Nom Nom Paleo,
You can say “I told ya so.”
I had to get that out of the way. For all the time Nom Nom has been singing the praises of Red Boat Fish Sauce, I still hadn’t tried the stuff.
I’m not sure why. It’s not the fish juice stink – I’m all about the oceanic olfaction. Give me sardines or fermented cod liver oil, I’m a happy gal. (Well, maybe don’t give ‘em to me at the same time.)
Maybe it’s the sophistication of the term umami - which is that “missing taste” that fish sauce provides. It’s a taste sense that isn’t ingrained from childhood like sweet, salty, sour and bitter. Also, there are no umami candies that I’m aware of. There ARE, however, sweet, salty, and sour ones. Sweet tarts. Salted caramel. Lemonheads. (When is Halloween again?)
Anywho. I finally ordered some of this stuff, and they ain’t kidding. It’s the best fish sauce in the world.
Well, considering it’s the first and only fish sauce I’ve ever tasted, I have no way to actually confirm this. But I believe it. And with how amazing this stuff is, I probably won’t go seeking any other.
I want YOU to experience the awesome, too. Thanks to a shipping mistake, Red Boat sent me TWO orders instead of one. I reached out about the mistake, and asked whether it’d be all right to give the second order away. And they said YES!
So now through Saturday, October 19 at 7PM CT, you can enter to win 2 bottles of 50N fish sauce (a slightly more potent sauce than the 40N pictured). Just enter through the rafflecopter widget below. It’s easy! If you sign up for my newsletter, you’ll get exclusive, unique posts every Monday. (No spam or sales pitches!)
The only thing more fun is…fish sauce!
