Hello world, there's a lot of advertising around for breath mints and chewing gums and tooth and mouth cleaning products but what about the promotion of bad breath? I'm going to do my part to help balance out the universe by sharing Mum Pham's Fish Sauce Mix recipe.

 Fishy version
  • 1 cup fish sauce 
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 2 cups boiled water (dissolve the sugar in the boiled water) 
  • 1/4 white vinegar 
  • 1/4 lemon juice 
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed/finely diced 
  • Finely diced fresh chilli optional! 
Faux-fish version (fancy-speak for vegetarian)
  • 1 tablespoon salt 
  • 1 cup sugar 
  • 2 cups boiled water (dissolve the sugar in the boiled water) 
  • 1/4 white vinegar 
  • 1/4 lemon juice 
  • 2-3 cloves of garlic, crushed/finely diced 
  • 1 drop of yellow colouring 
  • Finely diced fresh chilli optional! 
Mix it all together and it's best left overnight or for at least a few hours before serving so the garlic has time to work its magic on the mix. Enjoy!
