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.

You can keep this in the fridge for a week.Make sure to cover it properly though.
I put some camias (iba in bisaya) in mine to balance the saltiness of the dish.:)
