Mega Prime Oyster Sauce & Why it's a Kitchen Must-Have

Mega Prime Oyster Sauce: a Kitchen Must-Have

We Filipinos love everyday saucy dishes such as Adobo, Afritada, Chopsuey, and Caldereta. And that’s why you can never have too much sauce in stock! But aside from the usuals like soy sauce and fish sauce, be sure to keep a Mega Prime Oyster Sauce bottle on hand and ready. Read through this quick read for a feature on oyster sauce and the benefits of having Mega Prime Oyster Sauce as a kitchen staple.

Oyster Sauce 101 

But first, what is oyster sauce? What’s in it that makes it a yummy addition to the daily dishes that we prepare for the family?

Oyster sauce is a dark, rich and syrupy sauce that’s a mixture of caramelized oyster extracts, salt and sugar. Originating in China in 1888, oyster sauce was widely used in Cantonese cooking then was later shared with other cuisines such as Thai and Vietnamese.

If you check online on what oyster sauce tastes like, the usual description would be that it has an earthy, sweet and salty taste. While such a description is not wrong, oyster sauce packs a unique flavor.

  • Due to the caramelization involved in the process of preparing the sauce, its sweetness is dark and complex without being too sweet.
  • Its saltiness is less like the regular table salt and tastes more like sea salt.
  • The oysters naturally enrich the sauce’s flavor with umami and rich savory goodness.

Despite being made from seafood, oyster sauce does not smell and taste as fishy as fish sauce, and  also tends to be a little less salty compared to soy sauce.

A Few PinaSARAP Reminders with Oyster Sauce

To bring out its flavors as well as help it enrich your daily dishes, it’s important to know a few dos and don’ts when using oyster sauce. Consider these pointers:

  • Make a habit out of adding your oyster sauce near the end of your cooking. The longer you cook oyster sauce, the more it may lose its umami flavor and become bitter in taste.
  • Similar to the previous item, avoid cooking with oyster sauce on high heat.
  • Be sure to be on top of your dish’s saltiness when using salt and oyster sauce in one recipe.
