This is a home-made kosher substitute for Vietnamese (nuoc mam) or Thai (nam pla) fish sauce. To be honest it's not a great substitute, but it's acceptable if you need a kosher alternative or if you just can't find it in your neighborhood.

If you haven't jumped on the Bahn Mi Bandwagon because the baguettes have too many carbs, now is the time to make a Bahn Mi Taco. Bahn Mi is a traditionally Vietnam meat and pickled vegetable sandwich on a special kind of baguette. It is easy to make quick pickled carrots, daikon and cucumbers for this dish, just make sure to give yourself at least an hour to let the veggies absorb the flavor. This would make a really great appetizer, but you can also eat it as a meal with a large salad or soup on the side.

 

Bahn Mi Salmon Burger

August 10th 2014By Chef Laura Frankel

Banh mi sandwiches are a byproduct of French colonialism in Indochina, combining French and Vietnamese ingredients and flavors. Banh mi sandwiches are my favorite sandwich and I cannot get enough of the lip-smacking sweet- sour and savory deliciousness. This is my latest Banh mi variation. I like to use a combination of fresh Wild salmon and smoked salmon (not lox) for my salmon burgers. The briny fresh salmon alone would be “blown away” by the hot smoky grill or even a hot grill pan, but in combination with a smoked salmon, the fresh flavor shines through the smoke and is a brightly flavored alternative to a beef burger. I use an aioli to bind my ingredients. The fat, in this case the egg yolks and oil, keep the patty intact and add moisture to the mix. I do not use starchy binders like breadcrumbs or flour as the delicate salmon texture would be lost to the gummy starch. I added lime and ginger to my aioli for my rendition of the classic Vietnamese/French sandwich. I like the bright and “sunshiny” flavors.
