This is a favourite Filipino stir fry, and if you're a fan of bitter melon, you'll love it too.
Bitter melon is available in Chinese and Asian markets.
Bitter melon is different but good to stabilize blood sugar. I added ginger, didn't have tomato and used "patis" instead of using shrimp. Boiled bitter melon first to remove some of the bitterness; used vegetable broth to simmer and marry flavors. Also added black bean garlic sauce. My husband liked it. - 05 Jul 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
