Ginisang Bagoong is a Filipino condiment or side dish prepared with fermented minute shrimps sautéed in garlic and onions then cooked with sugar and chillies.


  • 2 cups raw bagoong alamang
  • 1/2 packed cup brown sugar
  • 2 pcs birds eye chillies, finely chopped
  • 1 pc long green chilli, finely chopped
  • 1 tbsp vinegar
  • 1 whole head garlic, minced
  • 1 small shallots, finely chopped
  • freshly ground black pepper
  • oil


  1. Place raw bagoong alamang in a fine mesh sieve, quickly rinse it in running cold water to remove excess salt. Drain then set aside.
  2. In a wok add around three tablespoons of oil, place in medium heat then sauté garlic until golden brown in colour.
  3. Add shallots then continue to cook in low heat for a minute.
  4. Add sugar then let it caramelize.
  5. Now add the bagoong, vinegar, red chillies, and green chilli, stir fry in medium heat for 5 minutes. You may add a bit of water, so it does not dry out. Once the consistency is thick, season with freshly ground black pepper. Turn the heat off then its ready.
