Shrimp with Coconut Roasted Paste

in food •  7 months ago

Hey dear steemians!

It's a real heat temperature here which can make you easily high temper as well...if, you do not eat your food. 😁 😁

Have you ever heard roasted coconut paste? I bet no. It's coconut flesh that roasted and smoothed. This is another familiar spice from Aceh besides asamsunti (dried blimbi). Maybe next time I'll share you the picture of them.

I love this shrimp recipe. I did a little bit experiment with the spice. Some Acehnese do love to be extravagant with the spice composition in their cuisine measurement. Well, I myself prefer medium composition so the taste won't be excessive.

So, here we go! Shrimp with roasted coconut paste.


  • 1/2 kg Shrimp
  • Lime
  • Salt
  • 200 ml coconut milk
  • Potato
  • Shallot
  • Curry leaf
  • Green chili
  • Bay leaf
  • Cloves
  • Cooking oil

Smoothen spice:

  • 5 shallot
  • 2 garlic
  • 1 cm ginger
  • 1 tsp coriander
  • 5 ceyene
  • 1 tbsp chili powder
  • 1 tsp turmeric
  • 1/2 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp caraway
  • 1 tsp Coconut roasted paste


  1. Wash the shrimp, squeeze lime and sprinkle salt.
  2. Grind all the spice then pour into shrimp, mix well.
  3. Mix potato into the shrimp and the spice.
  4. Heat the oil, fry shallot, bay and curry leaf.
  5. Add in shrimp with the potato, saute for a while till the spice cooked.
  6. Add in green chili, clove and coconut milk.
  7. Adjust the salt if you need, stir untill the potato and shrimp cooked well.
  8. Serve

Have a nice try! 😄 😄
