Ginisang Ampalaya with Shrimp

Ampalaya also known as Bitter Melon is one of my favorite vegetable. Ampalaya is not only delicious but also nutritious and easy to cook. One of my favorite Filipino dish to cook is this Ginisang Ampalaya with Shrimp.

I have few ampalaya recipes in this blog but this one is my favorite! I usually add pork to this dish but have been cutting down on pork lately and I don't see the difference in taste. Best when served with steamed white or brown rice.
