Vietnamese fish

This evening we took pictures of the process of making a favorite dish, hands down one of the most delicious ways to eat haddock (and not half bad with salmon, either). The procedure can be seen here, but the taste and smell just don't digitize well. It's an adaptation of a dish I first encountered in California about 25 years ago, but I've been making it so long that it's pretty well assimilated, and the 'Vietnamese' part is the fish sauce --an acquired taste/smell, but once acquired, nothing else will do.
