Stewed Squash and Shrimp (Ginatang Kalabasa at Hipon)

Peel and seed squash. Cut into 1-inch pieces. Set aside.


Heat oil in 2-quart skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic. Saute until it begins to turn light golden, 5 to 6 minutes. Add onion, pepper and ginger. Reduce heat. Cook until onion becomes translucent, 8 to 10 minutes. Add tomato, shrimp paste, fish sauce and squash. Saute over medium heat 5 minutes, taking care not to scorch vegetables. Turn heat to low if vegetables begin to brown too much. Add chicken stock and coconut milk. Bring to boil and simmer until squash is tender, 10 minutes. Add shrimp and cook another 3 minutes.
