One of the better asian style fermented fish sauces available here in the USA, although it's hard to find outside of large and populous asian enclaves {in my area for example, the 2 best places to find it are Flushing NY near Shea stadium, and China Town in lower Manhattan}. I've found it's generally fresher and slightly less salty than Tiparos Brand, although it does have a faintly sweet finish (due to tiny addition of fructose). It's one of my favorite go-to condiments for stirfry (perfect in fried rice), soup bases, marinades, etc.

It's tea-colored at peak freshness, but slowly darkens (and loses some of its delicate nuances) over several months, with exposure to heat and oxygen.

Recommended. Inexpensive too, at around $5 USD for 24 fl oz.

Minor packaging nit: I appreciate the fact that this is packaged in glass (which helps keeps it fresher longer), but the attractive and distinctive label stains easily ... the MFR should seal it better, to protect it from unsightly staining.

makes a great umami burger! just use as a pour over marinade. Easy does it! you only want a little for flavor. Grill as usual and enjoy.

For a blended fish sauce, this is actually pretty good. Apparently it is a mixture of a good Thai sauce (like Squid), a great Vietnamese sauce (like Red Boat), and some water and malt. The combination is quite tasty, though overall I prefer Squid and Red Boat straight.

When I read that Three Crabs was a premier brand, of course I wanted to try it. It can be difficult to find, so I checked with Amazon, but didn't want to pay such a high shipping fee. Luckily, I happened to notice it on the shelf of my local Korean market. Initially felt it was too salty, but have been using it for a while and it's fine. That doesn't mean that the non-premium brands I've bought were bad - they were just fine, as well.

I have not been able to purchase fish sauce in my area, so I went to Amazon. This is a seasoning and a little bit goes a long way. It is tasty and can be used with a variety of dishes, not just fish.
