Sa Wad Dee Ka πŸ™ Hive community ^^

Today I would like to share with you one of the oldest Thai foods since Ayutthaya Kingdom over 650 years ago which is still eat until nowadays. 😍

πŸ‡ΉπŸ‡­ Shrimp Paste Dip is perhaps the most famous Dip that served on the table in every Thai house. This spicy dip made with the funky fermented tiny shrimp paste that is the wildly use ingredient in the southern China and most of southeast Asia. If you are familiar with fish sauce so the shrimp paste is similar.πŸ˜„

The Shrimp paste not taste good on its own because of strong smell and way too far of salty taste but the smell will turn fragrance and gone after mixing with local spice and herb and almost of all Thai curry pastes use shrimp paste in the recipe.

Shrimp Paste Dip is often served with Eggplants and Climbing Wattle Omelette plus various fresh vegetables and boiled egg.

The delicious of this dip depend on the quality of shrimp paste that should smell fishy and aromatic but not stinky. I honestly have to admit that I'm out of breathe sometimes time when I open the jar of shrimp paste but it's a common ingredient for Thai kitchen. πŸ˜†

The important method is roasting the shrimp paste in a banana leaf to bring out the wonderful aroma and make it better smelling and tasting then grind all the ingredients by stone mortar.
It combines salty fragrance shrimp paste and spicy Thai chilis with lime juice for sourness and palm sugar for sweetness.

Shrimps have a high omega and the paste contains full of calcium from the whole shrimp including various vegetable with several health benefits and egg contained high protein. Such a perfect healthy dish, right? πŸ˜€
