So, what is prawn paste?

Prawn paste, also known as shrimp paste, is a popular ingredient in Southeast Asian cuisine. Made from finely ground shrimp that has been salted and fermented, it has a pungent, salty flavor and a distinctive aroma that can be both alluring and overwhelming. Prawn paste is often used as a seasoning in dishes such as soups, stews, and curries, and is also used as a dipping sauce for vegetables and meats. It adds a deep umami flavor to dishes and is a key ingredient in many Malaysian, Thai, and Vietnamese recipes. Packed with protein and essential minerals, prawn paste is a nutritious and flavorful addition to any dish.
