Red Boat premium fish sauce is a secret ingredient used by professional chefs and home cooks around the world. A national treasure of Vietnam, Red Boat is made using traditional chemical-free fermentation methods, a unique two hundred year-old artisanal process using only the freshest cá cơm (black anchovy), salted minutes after leaving the sea then 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. Red Boat is pure, 100% all natural first press “extra virgin” Vietnamese fish sauce. Made from only two ingredients it is free from added water, MSG, and preservatives. The quality of fish sauce is determined by protein levels. No other fish sauce has a natural protein content higher than Red Boat 40°N. Packed with B vitamins and minerals, the extra-rich protein content gives Red Boat a unique character and savory flavor that is healthy and delicious. Red Boat fish sauce gives all of your favorite recipes that elusive fifth flavor - umami. Try it with all things Asian, Caesar salad, pasta, braised dishes, or any seafood based recipe .
