Sauteed alamang (shrimp paste) is best paired with mangoes!

While most of the times, sauteed alamang is considered as condiments, there are other Filipino dishes where it can be used as ingredients like Kare-kare and Pork binagoongan.

Sauteeing alamang is just easy. I prefer raw alamang that is not too salty and has no bright colorings. If in case I bought one that is too salty, I will wash it with water first to remove the excess salt. 

Here's a simple Sauteed Alamang (Shrimp Paste) Recipe that you can follow.

Ingredients:
1 cup of alamang or shrimp paste
2 medium tomato, diced
2 slices pork meat (optional), chopped to little pieces
1 small onion, minced
4 cloves garlic, minced
4 tablespoons brown sugar
3 teaspoons vinegar

Instructions:
1. Heat a pan. Add the pork and sear until brown and the oil comes out.
2. Add onion, garlic and tomato then saute for 5 minutes in low heat.
3. Add the raw shrimp paste, sugar and vinegar. Let the vinegar cooked first before covering.
4. Cover and cook in low hear for 10-15 minutes, with occasional stirring.
5. Let it cool and transfer to a serving bowl and serve.

That easy! Oh, I am craving for mangoes now!!!
