The Little Woman doesn’t like a real fishy flavored fish sauce. That kinda sounds like a paradox. So, I learnt to make a Vegan Fish Sauce, and it was good. I used it in a Thai recipe.
2 cups water
3 TBSP soy sauce
½ cup dried shiitake mushrooms
2”x4” piece of Kombu (Sea Kelp)
2 cloves of whole garlic
Place all in a small sauce pot and reduce on medium heat until you’re are left with 1 cup of sauce. Strain the liquid and put in a jar and place in the frig. Use the mushrooms and garlic in your Thai dish.
