Ginataang Sugpo at Kalabasa, Prawn and Pumpkin in Coconut Milk

Ginataang Sugpo at Kalabasa, Prawn and Pumpkin in Coconut Milk. Using kalabasa on most of our seafood ginataan dish is not new. Kalabasa adds a creaminess and color to seafood ginataang dish. Today I used kalabasa to my ginataang sugpo the result was great, I did not only created a yummy dish, I did also cooked a colorful and visually appealing ginataang dish. To break the monotone of orange color I have also added some eggplant which is equally great for ginaataang dish. For the coconut milk I used canned coconut cream.

Cooking is straight forward if you have already cooked ginataang dish before this one is fairly easy. Here is the recipe of my Ginataang Sugpo at Kalabasa, Prawn and Pumpkin in Coconut Milk.


1 kilo medium size small or medium sized prawns, shelled, leave tails

1/4 small sized pumpkin or squash, skinned, de-seeded, sliced thinly into small triangles

1-2 medium sized eggplant, cut into thin slices

2-3 pieces red or green chili, cut crosswise

1 large can coconut cream

1 large onion, peeled, chopped

1/2 garlic, peeled, crushed, chopped

2 thumb size ginger, skinned, cut into thin strips

1 tbsp. salted shrimp paste


cooking oil

Cooking procedure:

In a wok heat some cooking oil, add in the ginger and garlic, stir cook for about a minute. Then add in the onion and stir cook for another minute or until translucent. Add in half of the coconut milk and about 2 to 2 1/2 cups of water bring to a boil and simmer for 2 to 3 minutes stirring occasionally to prevent from curdling. Add in the shrimp paste and eggplant and simmer for about 2 to 3 minutes then add in the pumpkin and continue to cook for about 2 to 3 minutes, season with salt to taste. Now add in the remaining coconut cream and the prawns, continue to cook for another 5 to 8 minutes or until the prawn are just cooked. Serve with a lot of rice.
