Can I substitute hoisin sauce for fish sauce?

Because hoisin sauce has an umami flavor, it may serve as a substitute for fish sauce. To substitute fish sauce with hoisin sauce, mix hoisin sauce with soy sauce at a 1:1 ratio. This offsets the sweetness of hoisin sauce. Then use the mixture to replace fish sauce in equal amounts.
