The Romans used a salty fish sauce called liquemen. They used it on everything.

They also were great combiners of ingredients, considering it a great compliment if you couldn't tell what you were eating.

I read somewhere (I think 'Food In History')that liquamen survived as worchestershire sauce. Woostus Saucus. It does have anchovies in it. The rest of the world gave up on salty fish sauce except the Orient and Brittania. Interesting.
