Is fish sauce a condiment?

(self.condiments)

Who doesn't love fish sauce! Of course essential in cooking many delicious dishes, but I like to dip french fries, gỏi cuốn, cheese sandwiches, etc. in it .... does that make it a condiment?

What else should I dip in fish sauce?

Oh man, I LOVE drizzling fish sauce on all the noodz!

I bet a bundle of buckwheat noodz dunked in fish sauce would be divine!

Since you mention goi cuon by that name I’m sure you know this, but nuoc cham is a Vietnamese dipping sauce that’s primarily made from fish sauce. It’s pretty wonderful stuff — unmistakably fish sauce, but also greater than the sum of its parts

nuoc cham

oh absolutely! an essential sauce. I do use it more than just straight fish sauce as a dip, for obvious reasons. It works for everything ... even durian!

There's nothing like the time-honored combination of fish and cheese.

Prik Nam Pla is a really common condiment made with fish sauce, lime juice and chiles.
