Notes

I usually add the smallest amount of salt to taste because I like the taste of the shrimp paste to give it taste. I usually get my kare kare and slather it with the shrimp paste.

You can add all the broth if you want to just like I do, because my kids love the left over kare-kare even with just the soup.But note that this recipe yields a lot of broth. So it's up to you if you want to have small amount of soup in your kare-kare.
