  1. Prepare the Shrimp Paste

    • Heat a pan and add vegetable oil. Put chopped garlic and half of the shrimp paste into the pan.
    • Roast the crumbled shrimp paste in the pan until the colour changes to a brown from the purplish appearance. Be careful not to burn to paste. This creates a very fragrant material and drives off some of the extreme volatile aromas.
  2. Finish the Dish

    • Add the rest of the paste, shrimp, bitter beans and season with sugar, oyster sauce and fry together until fragrant and cooked. Garnish with the chili and serve with rice.
