(Sweet Potato Salad-kangong)

Patis is a by-product of the production of bagoong, a fish paste. Some experts lump the two together under the category of fish sauce. Fish sauce is an amber-colored liquid extracted from the fermentation of fish with sea salt. .... Patis is also used in place of table salt in meals to enhance the flavor of the food.
