Was that cantelope with fish sauce as part of a dressing? What a wild combination. I would think it would have to be a mild form of a fish sauce. Does it explain why fish? I immediatly thought of salt and sweet combination.
I have been playing with angelica recently in regards to Saami cooking. The end result is not sweet like one would be used to with angelica candy. It did turn the milk green too.

I usually use a Thai brand fish sauce that is readily available here in the
PNW. But I noticed that Zingerman's has an Italian Garum. Has anyone tried
it? They also have a 16 year old Balsamic in a one liter barrel! And a one
ounce testing set of 8, 10, 20, and 40 year old balsamic vinegars.
