Top 5 Best Halal Fish Sauces in Malaysia 2022 (Certified)
Hello there! Craving Thai food? Today we’ll review 5 of the best Halal fish sauces in Malaysia that you can get on Shopee & Lazada, so you can make the most delicious Thai foods.
What Can You Use Fish Sauce For?
Most Thai dishes will replace salt with fish sauce because it is quite salty. Typically Thai dishes like tomyam, pineapple fried rice (or any kind of fried rice really), pad thai and others all require fish sauce to get that authentic umami taste. But fish sauce is not limited to Thai cuisine only.
If you use it correctly and in combination with other ingredients, fish sauce can be a great addition to Kimchi or Vietnamese spring rolls.
Although most fish sauces contain only fish products and some preservatives, some brands do have the Halal certification, either by Malaysian authorities or the equivalent Thai authorities.
Get one and a steamer, and you can make the steamed fish yourself. What is easier than a steamed fish?
