  • Mix it with a big amount of salt to avoid fleshy smell.
  • Add adequate amount of water so the spaces between the parts of the fish also gets filled.
  • Pour this mixture into an air tight container or jar and cover it with a cheese cloth.
  • Keep aside this jar full of mixture for some days. Shake it after every 1-2 days.
  • Little bubbles start appearing inside the jar. These bubbles assure you that your mixture is now fermenting. Also the mixture starts separating into multiple layers.
  • After a week take out all the solids from inside the mixture using a strainer.
  • A brown liquid has been formed into the jar. Just make this mixture go through the cheese cloth so that any solid if left inside the jar will come out.
  • Now boil the fish sauce for about minutes to make it pasteurize.
  • Taste this sauce as it pasteurized. Add more salt and water to it.
