Shrimp sauce is made from fresh silver shrimp and salt. The shrimp is fermented with the salt to produce rich aroma and deep savory flavors before being ground into a paste. Shrimp sauce is great for marinating, steaming with foods, or stir-frying. Shrimp sauce is essential for making sambal belacan, shrimp pad thai, and satay.
Uses: Mix shrimp sauce into your dips or sauces for seafood or meat for a rich umami taste. Cook shrimp sauce with oil before adding aromatics to take your stir-fry dishes to another level.
