Fish sauce is basically fermented anchovies and water and is a key ingredient and you will love the finished product. The fish sauce imparts saltiness. Salt or wheat-free tamari sauce can be used in place of the fish sauce to make the recipe fish-free.
Taste this dish as you are adding the curry and the fish sauce. You want the curry to be spicy but not too spicy for your family. Salty, but not too salty.

Be sure to use whichever “salt” ingredient is safe for your needs:
For wheat-free, use wheat/gluten free tamari
