“Does fish sauce need to be refrigerated?”

  1. Hello,

    I have a bottle of three crab fish sauce I used to make Kimchi yesterday (looking good, but no yellow foam yet). I can't find on the label where it says to refrigerate or not. When I removed the plastic coating to open it, I may have lost the english information.

    I have googled and got mixed results. Some say refrigeration causes salt crystals to precipitate and ruins it and lowers shelf life, others say to refrigerate.

    I can't find a definitive answer and the phone number on the bottle rings and rings then goes to a fax eventually.

    Do I or don't I put it in the fridge?



  2. Richard,
    I never keep the leftover fish sauce in the refrigerator.

  3. Thank You!
