For anyone who enjoys Thai and Asian cuisine, this 370g jar of Pantai shrimp paste is essential. It is a traditional ingredient in Thai and Southern Chinese foods and can be used to make a delicious dipping sauce for fish or vegetables.
Made from fermented ground shrimps, Pantai shrimp paste is also a key ingredient in several curries and savoury sauces. The distinctive salty flavour and scent mean that a little goes a long way. For best results add it sparingly to dishes at the beginning and gently fry.
