  1. Crush GARLIC and chop very fine.
  2. Mix All items together. Let age for an hour or so if you can.
NOTES:
  1. Vinegar:   Preferably use a high quality Philippine cane vinegar, or a Philippine coconut or palm vinegar. Lacking those, rice vinegar can be used. If all you have is white distilled vinegar, dilute it a touch with water. The photo specimen is made with a lightly tinted natural cane vinegar. For details see our Sours page.
  2. Sautéd Shrimp Paste:   [Bagoong Alamang Guisado] This is readily available in any Philippine market. They carry both the plain and Guisado versions. For details see our Shrimp Sauce / Paste page.
