Grilled Pinakbet

Grilling the vegetables prior to cooking adds a delicious smokey flavor to this classic Filipino dish. Pinakbet is a vegetable dish sauteed with shrimp paste, with or without meat and shrimp.  Squash, bitter gourd (ampalaya), okra, string beans (sitaw) and eggplant are the mainstays of this dish, it’s okay not to use all of them. I usually don’t add egg plant and string beans.

It’s really simple to make,  the prep work–the peeling and cutting of veggies – is the “hard” part, so let the kids help, if you can make them. In my case, I had to threaten them with turning off the wifi before I could make them do anything. Kids these days sigh It’s the circle of life though — It was comics and game&watch  for me with my mom 😀

First grill the vegetables

saute garlic, onion and tomatoes in a pan over medium high heat

add shrimp paste

add water and let simmer for about 10 minutes

add the grilled vegetables. Cover pan and let simmer for about 5 minutes

and it’s done. Serve with steamed rice . Enjoy!
