Chinese phrase to mention fish and seafood allergies?

My bf and I ordered in some Chinese tonight and one of the things we ordered was a "minced meat with noodles" dish which I didn't realise at first contained some sort of fish sauce (I'm assuming oyster sauce). I wouldn't have thought of that, and I have a friend who is deathly allergic to fish. Now for us it's no big deal, but if I had her over I'd want to know if anything has a seafood based sauce like that.

Now she's had problems in the past telling Chinese-speaking order-takers at a Chinese restaurant "No fish or seafood. I'm allergic if I eat fish or seafood it will kill me." only to receive an order with EXTRA shrimp. :/

So is there an easy phrase in Chinese we could say just to reinforce the message? Pinyin or something like that preferred, since I can't read Chinese symbols.
