This weekend, I went to the grocery and got a bottle of Golden Boy Brand Fish Sauce for $2. You’d think that when it comes to cooking, opening a bottle would be the least of your concerns. Clearly, I was mistaken.
There was no tab or twist cap on the top, as one might assume. This can happen with imported stuff because we’re not used to how they do things over there.
Pulling, pressing, twisting, stabbing, and pinching the tip didn’t work. I tried for about 15 minutes to figure this out. I’ve never felt so foolish in my entire life. I have a BBA but can’t manage to crack open a bottle of fish sauce.
Carefully cut the plastic cap off using a sharp knife. I slowly cut it with a steak knife. I was tempted to rip it apart, but I had to keep my wrath in check so I didn’t accidently stab myself.
