Flor De Garum - Fish Sauce

Flor De Garum - Fish Sauce

Flor de Garum is a premium Spanish fish sauce made from an ancient recipe from the 3rd century A.D., found in a European abbey. Made with only the finest anchovies, salt, and spices, this exquisite sauce adds a complex umami flavor to salad dressings, pasta dishes, or other sauce preparations. Delicate, savory and complex, Matiz Flor de Garum is a fish sauce unlike you’ve tasted before.
Garum is the ancient Roman version of fish sauce, and was a ubiquitous condiment in that era. Its savory “umami” flavor added color and definition to ordinary foods (you could say it was their version of ketchup!).
Garum was made with similar ingredients as an Asian fish sauce – fish, salt and spices – however, the amount of salt used was much less, resulting in more of the proteins being extracted from the fermenting fish. These proteins lent a greater flavor complexity to the sauce. Use it in salad dressings, marinades, pasta dishes, or add a splash to finished dishes. For a simple sauce that goes with just about anything, add chopped garlic, a bit of vinegar and hot peppers.
