Sizzling Gising Gising with Barrio Fiesta Bagoong Spicy Gata

Gising-gising (Tagalog for “Wake up, wake up!”) is a simple, lightly spicy recipe that’s from Central Luzon. It usually combines French beans (or what we call “Baguio beans”) and minced pork but is often modified with the use of winged beans (sigarilyas) or water spinach (kangkong). Some also cut the beans into shorter or longer pieces; it’s really a matter of preference.

Our version uses string beans (sitaw) and chopped shrimp served on a sizzling platter, which should be pre-heated on the stove; we recommend adding Barrio Fiesta Bagoong Spicy Gata to intensify the dish’s overall umami, spiciness, and coconut flavor. Usually served as a side dish, you may increase the size of your prawns to turn this into a tasty and filling one-pot meal.
