Make any soup you want and use the fish sauce instead of salt for the seasoning. Once the fish sauce is added to any soup (any cooking really), its aroma changes and it does not smell like fish anymore. My aunt uses it to season her spaghetti sauce. It's sort of like adding anchovies to a dish.

Actually you are adding anchovies as fish sauce is made by fermenting them. A Vietnamese pho would be a good place to begin or any number of ramen (ramyun) type soups.

Tom Kha Gai is one of the best known Thai soups. There's a recipe for it on Food 52.

Here are a couple of good ones. Once you start using fish sauce, you may find it as addictive as I do. It's a great condiment to keep on hand.

I made a pork and shrimp dumpling soup that called for about 2T of fish sauce, gave it great flavor. The recipe came from "The Adobo Road," a Filipino cookbook, but I'm sure there are plenty of dumpling recipe soups out there.
