Fish sauce

Fish sauce. I don’t know how they make it. I don’t want to know how they make it. What I do know is that this magical ingredient appears in every recipe I look up.
Tofu, cauliflower, fish sauce.
Cabbage, carrots, fish sauce.
Cornbread, honey, fish sauce.
With all due respect to Jerry Seinfeld and his revelation about cinnamon, I proclaim fish sauce is king. On hot wings, in smoothies, and over pancakes.
So the next time you have guests over, and you want a dish to really pop, just wring out a grouper or two and wait for the compliments to roll in.
Mostly, I wanted to be able to say that my first blog post was about fish sauce.
