    Last time I went shopping in Little Saigon, I bought a bottle of Mam Nem Phu Quoc, aka Fish Sauce. You know those little cans of anchovy fillets? Fish sauce is the fermented remains of what doesn't go into those cans, with some salt and water.

    As I was saying, I bought some fish sauce, and added a bit (about half a teaspoon) to the hot pot. One thing you need to know about fish sauce: it stinks. Stunk up the kitchen, half the house and I can still smell it on my fingers. But it added a heavenly taste to the hot-pot that you can't get any other way.

    I think of Fishgrease's profanity the same way I think about Fish Sauce. A little goes a long way, and I sure would miss it if it were gone.
