Thai Shrimp Paste
Shrimp paste is an important ingredient in South East Asian cooking. This shrimp paste is a pungent and salty, made from ground shrimp which is fermented under a hot sun.
An essential component to a Thai larder, shrimp paste can be used to transform stir fries, curries, dipping sauces and fish cakes. Shrimp paste’s salty, fishy flavour brings richness and complexity to dishes.
Shrimp paste is best cooked to release its flavour before adding to dishes – try frying it in a little oil before adding the main components of the dish.
