Nordur Salt Garum Fish Sauce
Nordur Salt Garum Fish Sauce is the Umami of Umamis! It brings what you know about the ‘fifth’ flavour to another dimension. Norður Garum is a world-class fermented fish sauce. Imported from Iceland, it is made purely from autumn Mackerel from Breiðafjörður and Norður Salt. Norður Garum is a great food ingredient, sauce and dressing enhancer, a companion to fish, on your fried vegetables, and so much more. It’s a brilliant ‘secret’ element.
(It’s not just for making Asian food!) Fermented fish sauce may make you think of Asian cooking, yet it is a condiment with a deep history dating from Ancient Rome and Greece in the 3rd and 4th Century BC. Garum or ‘liquamen’ is a salty seasoning sauce, used instead of salt, that has an indescribable umami flavour character. Like wine, there are varying qualities and making methods. The fish, the infusion spices, the slow cooking, and fermentation are all key.
Nordur Salt has innovated a Garum with Mackerel by fermenting a fish stock made with salt, herbs, and citrus boiled by way of geothermal hot spring water. It has a surprisingly subtle flavour that enhances food in dynamic way. Nordur Salt Garum has an elevated wonderful aroma and taste. And while you wouldn’t likely choose to have it on its own, the piquant character it contributes to all kinds of dishes is unlike any anchovy paste you may be thinking about.
