Questions & Answers

What is the purpose of this? I find this intriguing. ?

Thank you for your business, I apologize if you are not familiar with the sauce and/or have never eaten Oriental food before you would have to be careful. Even though the sauce is good, it should not be used in all Oriental cooking due to the shrimp's fermented smell. As a whole, this sauce is pretty good. It is my pleasure to answer your question.

It says on the bottle that the sauce should be cooked before use, so I was wondering if I could use it raw, as it is. There are many people who use it raw, and I intend to verify that. ?

The answer is yes

Would it be more suitable to use this instead of shrimp fry used to prepare ?

This is for making Kimchi, yes.

Should I toast this before adding it to my food, or may I use it directly in prepared foods?

The oil does not need to be cooked, warmed up or toasted in any way. Just use it directly in

There was no disappointment for me
5/5

I am pleased with how everything turned out. Oh my gosh! It wasn't a trick! I just opened the jar and saw the real thing! The other day I decided to make kimchee for a change and tried an authentic Korean recipe that There was no disappointment for me. I'm happy with how everything turned out! I would advise those who complained about the smell of the odor to think about the products they are using. If something is fermented (especially shrimp), it does not automatically mean it is sweet and pleasant to smell. You should get out of the kitchen if it is too hot in there! Thanks for bringing me the ingredients I was looking for,.

You might find it difficult to eat if you're not used to the taste
5/5

The taste can be challenging if you are not familiar with it, but if you know how to prepare it, you can make an excellent dish by using You should not bring it into the office. If you lose your job, you will lose it.

Product - There are no additives or preservatives in this product It is simply shrimp paste and salt
5/5

It is finely ground and can be used for many Asian dishes and in kimchi making. It is believed that a clean-up will boost confidence There's nothing wrong with purchasing a packaged product like this without preservatives, non-obvious additives, and it's cleanly packaged and labeled, unlike many products from Asia. *Be sure to only get this item if you have a particular need or recipe that calls for it, or if If you live in a larger city, Asian markets may be able to offer this for significantly less. However, if you are experimenting, or are an experienced cook who doesn't have access to Asian markets nearby, this shrimp paste should be adequate.

INTENSE FLAVOR AND COMPLIANT WITH THE KETO DIET
5/5

You only need a small amount of this to achieve the intense flavor. In this case, we cover raw meats and fish overnight with it and let them air-dry I cooked it a second time I'm blown away by how intense the flavor is. The KETO diet is also suitable for this product. This is one of our favorites.

What I was hoping for was not what happened
3/5

The product arrived in good condition. It was the first time I used Shrimp Sauce for a recipe, and I don't know if the smell must have been that strong after opening it, but I sure did run to the kitchen window as soon as I opened it. worked in the recipe I used, but I'm not sure I'll use it again since I'm not certain I will like how it tastes. This is not to say the product is bad it may be just what others are looking for I find the smell too strong and it does not work for me.

The smell is horrible, but the kimchi is excellent
5/5

There is a strong smell to this stuff, as stated by other reviews. But I think that would be expected with a jar of preserved shrimp that has been ground to a powder. In kimchi, I have only ever used it once, and I have never seen it on the market My pot of it turned out to be delicious, so I am happy with it.

Kimchi lovers will love this
5/5

This is a food item I bought so I could make Kimchi. A delicious and pungent flavor is present, along with a strong salt taste. With all the other ingredients combined, the paste brought out all the other flavors in the kimchi, and the fermenting process of the paste helped the kimchi ferment more quickly. Located in the fridge, inside a lock). One year is a reasonable period of time for keeping it.

Can you tell me what this stuff is? When I bought this, I thought it would be perfect for adding to soups, ramen, and stock to enhance the flavor of seafood
3/5

Apparently, it's described as shrimp sauce. However, it's more of a paste than a sauce. How it came to be like that isn't There is no shrimp taste to it at all. There's a FOUL smell and the food isn't worth trying. It's a good thing that she believes it to be foul because anchovies and herring, which have strong fresh smells, are both delicious. The taste of this, however, is awful, and it is absolutely intolerable!.
