Bagoong Guisado Recipe

Bagoong Guisado

Sautéed Shrimp Paste or Bagoong Guisado are fermented small shrimps (called alamang) that were sautéed with garlic, onion, tomato, and pork. This can be considered either as a dish or as a condiment.

There are many Filipino dishes that depend on shrimp paste for flavor. Kare-kare and Pork Binagoongan (binagoongang baboy) are just a few of them.

As a stand alone dish, Bagoong Guisado can be simply eaten with steamed rice. Do you like Bagoong Fried Rice? You can make one by checking-out the garlic fried rice recipe; try adding 1/4 cup of Bagoong Guisado to the recipe. I will publish a separate recipe post, soon.
