Tofuna Fysh Sauce's balanced flavors come from tamari, fruit juice and seaweed. You can use it proportionally in any recipe that calls for fish sauce.
Ingredients: organic tamari (water, organic soy beans, salt, organic alcohol), rice vinegar, pineapple juice concentrate, organic seaweed blend (dulse, laver, sea lettuce), wasabi.
Tofuna Fysh Sauce is available on Amazon (linked above).
When you're cooking at home or eating at a restaurant that uses fish sauce, you (or the chef) can try these mixtures instead:
- Shiitake mushroom broth and soy sauce for earthy/salty
- Soy sauce, lime juice and sugar for salty/sour/sweet
- Soy sauce and vegan Worcestershire sauce for salty/pungent
If you're having trouble finding the right blend of ingredients, ready-made vegan fish sauce does exist! The only problem is that it's not usually found at chain grocery stores.
But that doesn't mean it's impossible or even difficult to find.
Check your local health food store or Asian market - just carefully read the labels for the word "vegan."
You can also find vegan fish sauce online. Portland, Oregon company Tofuna Fysh makes a fantastic fish sauce substitute called Fysh Sauce, which we recommend (now linked above).
