Vegan Fish Sauce

Prepare this recipe for Vietnamese and Thai fish sauce that you can use with meat meals.


  • Prep Time : 4 min
  • Cook Time : 30 min
  • Ready Time : 34 min


3 cups


  • 1 1/2 cups shredded seaweed, like Nori or 2 large pieces Kombu
  • 6 cups water
  • 8 cloves garlic
  • 1 tablespoon black peppercorn, whole
  • 1/2 cup mushroom soy sauce
  • 1/2 cup light soy sauce
  • 1 tablespoon Miso paste


Combine seaweed, garlic, peppercorns and water in a large sauce pan and bring to a boil. Lower heat and simmer about 20 minutes. Strain and return the liquid back to the pot. Add both soy sauces, bring back to a boil and cook until mixture is reduced and almost unbearably salty. Remove from heat and stir in miso.

Pour into a bottle or jar and keep in the refrigerator. Use one-for-one to replace fish sauce in vegan recipes.

  1. The name of this alone makes it worth trying.

    Does the kombu give this a briny taste? Could it be left out?

    I couldn’t find mushroom soy so I just used the regular soy. the kombu did make it briny tasting, but I think that might be the whole idea behind fish sauce.
