Fried rice is universally popular. All that it needs is a little zest, a little flavour boost, to make it a real treat. Shrimp paste is one of the many seasonings that supply the desired enhancement of taste. A flavoursome condiment, it is a purple-tinted, solid paste and a rich source of protein and calcium. Although it probably originated in south China, shrimp paste is widely used throughout Southeast Asia and is very much a Thai staple.
