Wise chefs know that in cooking, to reach beyond the simple one note flavors of salty, sweet, bitter and sour, cooks use "umami." Sometimes labeled as the fifth taste, umami packed foods, such as anchovies, tomatoes and mushrooms, are savory, rich and nuanced, and offer a feeling of satisfaction that plain "sweet" or "salty" never can.
Just in to Liberty Heights Fresh, all natural Red Boat Fish Sauce is savory, sweet, and umani-packed, giving its dishes a satisfying and rich quality. Red Boat is a first press "extra virgin" Vietnamese fish sauce, gluten free, and without preservatives or MSG.
Created from a two hundred year-old artisanal process, family-run Red Boat is made simply from black anchovies that are salted minutes after leaving the sea, then slow aged for over a year in traditional wooden barrels. Red Boat anchovies are fished exclusively from the crystal clear waters off the Phu Quoc Island archipelago off Vietnam.
Use Red Boat to add complexity and subtly to many of your dishes. Add a few teaspoons to soups and stews for a richer broth, in spice rubs and vinaigrettes, and to any dish that needs a lift.
