This looks simply delicious, I would try it. I have made a couple of times a Malaysian recipe from one of Madhur Jaffrey's cookbooks "Stir-Fried Shrimp with Tamarind and Chiles" (Sambal Udang). It calls for a teaspoon of shrimp paste and you used it to make a seasoning paste with ground candlenuts or cashews and shallots, soaked dried chiles and tamarind. It is fiery, funky, scrumptious, and garnished with cilantro sprigs. But the shrimp are peeled.
