There are descriptions of the process for making garum in Manilius' 
Astronomica, and texts attributed to Gargilius Martialis (3rd Century) and 
Rufus Festus (4th Century).  The latter two texts may actually be medieval 
texts attributed to the authors rather than written by them.

Do you by any chance recall where the recipe was from?
There are garum-.like sauces still made today, but the
only historical recipe I know is from the Geoponica.
