Zhejiang Chinese Black Rice Vingar

I found some chinese black rice vinegar (zhejiang) in the pantry the other day, but have no idea how it got there / how to use it. All the recipes I've found on the net don't seem so appealing, i.e. braised pig feet, cold aubergine salad etc. do you have any suggestions for other uses? Can it be used as a substitute for regular rice wine vinegar?

fishsauce ideas

I have some fish sauce and can't think of anything to use it in other than pad thai or a vietnamese salad dressing. Any other ideas?

Spaghetti sauce

SICILIANA all the way. make sure you melt some anchovies first in the oil, then add onion, garlic and eggplant. let eggplant cook a lotttt so it gets really tender. add tomato, starchy pasta water and let it simmer for a while. add capers and done.

rice paper roll fillings

I have a pack of rice paper, and was wondering if anyone has any ideas on fillings?? I know there are heaps of recipes on the net but most of them need asian condiments such as fish sauce and hoisin but I don't have access to any of those.. I dont want the wraps to turn out bland. any ideas??
