    You had to know someone was going to ask: What the heck is Red Boat Anchovy Salt and what can I replace it with when I can't find it?
     
    Otherwise, it sounds like a good recipe.

    It is not replaceable but it is easy to obtain. The mango barrels that anchovies are cured in to make fish sauce are scraped free of the salt, the salt is then laid out on screens on the beaches of Vietnam, once dried the salt is hermetically sealed then shipped to the endpoint. It's one of my most potent weapons in the kitchen.

    So, maybe look in my local Asian markets?  Is "Red Boat" a specific brand name or a variety?

    Red Boat is a trademarked brand. They are the only company making anchovy salt. It's divine. I'm sure you can find it online if you don't have access to a large, well stocked Asian grocery.

    We have several.  Thanks Root-Beer Man for posting that link.  Seeing an image of the product will make it easier to identify in the store.  OTOH, I hope it costs less than the internet price in the store.  Twenty bucks for a little over half a pound seems more than a tad steep.  I just bought a pound and a half of Himalayan Pink Salt for about $2.  Good flavor, less harsh than regular salt.

    One of those bags will last you a year. A tiny sprinkle is all it takes. It even says "use sparingly" on the package as it is super strong. It is anchovy salt and all that phrase implies.

    I looked at a couple of places online and the prices really vary. I would guess that the price might even be lower in a local shop. It must be pretty popular, though. Amazon carries it, but they were sold out.

    Once you lay your hands on some and sprinkle it on your veggies you will never go back

    Please do. And implement it on your brassicae cooking. It marries well with that genus.

    Presumably it would do the trick on Collard Greens as well then?

    I wrote a recipe for funky collard greens using Red Boat, the sauce, could be adapted for the salt as well http://www.scrumptiousche...th-fried-green-onions/

    I checked HMart in Centreville VA and Lotte Plaza nearby, neither had the salt but Lotte Plaza had the Red Boat Fish Sauce which gets pretty good reviews. I ordered the salt on Amazon.
