On the hunt for this great looking spice!
I first came across this product at a little store called ‘Friendly’s Grocery’ in Fredericton, New Brunswick, almost thirty years ago and I loved it the very first time I tasted it. It is not always easy to find and I have gone for several years at a time without seeing it anywhere. When I came across it in a store in Ottawa’s Chinatown on a recent visit I naturally bought every can they had.
The product is essentially a paste made with dried shrimp and chili and peanuts and I have always used it as condiment. It is a product of Singapore and, since very few people over here in Canada are ever likely to have even seen it before, I would be very interested to hear from anybody in Singapore or Malaysia who recognizes it and can tell me how they use it…
