|Fish drying on the ground|
Fish paste is a important component to most Khmer cooking. Not entirely sure why but apparently it adds a lovely flavor. The short and sweet of it is that it's basically dried fish left fermenting in order to break down to a sort of puree. Done in a sealed factory it may not be so bad, but open air (and open to bugs) is really something!
