What is Anchovy Fish Sauce? Origin and Interesting Facts
Anchovy fish sauce is one of the most popular and unique fish sauces in the world. The origin of the sauce is unclear since there are too many variations of the sauce. Some believe that it originated in France, while some think it originated in the UK.
However, in South Asia, this fish sauce is typically made using anchovies, salt, and water, giving it the signature fishy, intense, and salty taste that people love. The South Asian version—particularly the Vietnamese version—of the anchovy fish sauce is also runnier in consistency compared to other versions.
In this recipe, we’re going to share with you the French-inspired version of their famed anchovy sauce called anchoïade, which uses white wine vinegar. In this recipe, we’ll swap it for red wine vinegar.
