    Hi.. I just recently made the Kimchi recipe here but I was wondering something just now… my g/f told me that her parents use a fermented shrimp sauce/paste (bought in the korean market).

    Is it better to use that then to use the fish sauce or is there any real difference?

    If I wanted to try it with the fermented shrimp, would I use the same amount as what was recommended for the fish sauce in the recipe?

    Thank you!!

    ko_chin,

    Just follow my kimchi recipe and ask me questions if you have.

    Some people use only saewoojeot (salty shrimp) instead of fish sauce. I like to use fish sauce because I like the flavor.
