Five ingredients are all you need for this super simple recipe, and you don't even need fresh seafood. This recipe takes advantage of your love for bagoong, or shrimp paste, and creates a powerfully flavor-packed sauce. The toasted garlic is a delicious addition while the butter and olive oil tempers the saltiness of the bagoong. Want it spicy? Use a spicy bagoong or add a pinch or two of cayenne pepper.    

A bag of frozen shrimps should be a kitchen staple if you love dishes with shrimp. Grab a bag of the pre-shelled or pre-peeled shrimps for a fast and easy way to add this seafood to your dish. Since shrimp and prawns need time to be prepared properly, it's a good idea to save the fresh seafood for special occasions or when you want to enjoy a happy meal that you successfully made at home.
