My mum has been visiting and she came with me shopping and saw the pumpkin and the shrimps in the store and wanted to make one of her favorite dishes. Pumpkin and shrimps coconut stew or as it is called in the Philippines, Ginataang kalabasa na may sugpo.
1 chopped onion
4 cloves minced garlic
2 tbsp minced fresh ginger
3 chilis or more or less depending on how hot you want it.
1 can coconut milk
1 box coconut cream
1 small pumpkin remove seeds, peel and cube
1 kilo large shrimps
3-4 Bok choy bouquets
1-2 tbsp fish sauce
salt and pepper to taste
Saute onion, garlic, ginger and chili in a pot until soft and fragrant.
Add coconut milk, coconut cream and pumpkin cubes and bring to a boil.
Turn down the heat and let it simmer until the pumpkin is getting soft, then add the shrimps and let it simmer about 5 minutes before you add the bok choy.
Add fish sauce, salt and pepper to taste.
When the bok choy is starting to wilt the stew is ready.
Serve with rice.
