In Vietnamese, nuoc mam means literally "salted fish water." Red Boat nuoc mam nhi is the secret ingredient in South East Asian cooking. The savory, sweet, and umami-laden sauce gives dishes a unique, rich and satisfying dimension.
Red Boat is an all-natural, first press, "extra virgin" Vietnamese fish sauce. It does not contain added water, preservatives or MSG. Made from a two hundred year-old, chemical free, artisanal process, Red Boat uses only the freshest ca com (black anchovy), salted minutes after leaving the sea then slow aged for over a year in traditional wooden barrels. Red Boat anchovies are sourced exclusively from the crystal clear waters off the Phu Quoc Island archipelago.
In the past, this top-grade fish sauce was reserved for the family table in Vietnam, but now we can bring you the only authentic Vietnamese Phu Quoc fish sauce available in the United States.
