    it was mentioned that you can substitute fish sauce with salt (since its basically a very salty sauce which tastes/smells like/is made of fish).

    I’ve been to a korean market in Germany and there was a huge display of different fish sauces… I think a lot of them had different kind of fish species in it and some even had additional herbs and spices.

    Is it very important for traditional/original korean cooking (like kimchi) to use one specific brand/fish sauce?

    I bought a big bottle of oyster sauce there. Can I substitute the fish sauce with the oyster sauce or does it taste too different?




    no, oyster sauce is different from fish sauce that I use for kimchi or other side dishes. You can use any kind of fish sauce.
