Q: I can’t find kosher anchovy paste or fish sauce. How do I make my own?
Amy, Tulsa OK
A: Amy, believe it or not, you are not alone. I hear this question often. It is hard to find these products with reliable kosher supervision just about everywhere.
Specialty products like these usually come on and off the market either because of low demand or importing problems. One day, when I was griping over this problem to the Gourmet Glatt supermarket manager, he said his wife had the absolutely best recipe for anchovy paste. So I called her and we’ve posted it here for you!
For a fish sauce recipe, try this one on for size and let me know what you think: Kosher Fish Sauce
