Mix Vegetables without Shrimp Paste

In the Philippines, Mix Vegetables with Shrimp Paste is a dish  known as "Pakbet" or "Pinakbet". It's a mix of local vegetables with fermented fish or small shrimp. Nowadays, Filipinos cook Pakbet with their own way and their own taste. Like me, I didn't add fish paste or shrimp paste and pork. I used shrimp head juice and fish sauce for seasoning that's why I renamed it as Mix Vegetables without Shrimp Paste.

1 small bitter gourd (ampalaya), sliced
1 small small eggplant, sliced
1/4 squash, cut into bite size
6 pieces okra, sliced
6 pieces stringbeans, slice
1 medium tomato, sliced
1 small onion, choppped
2 cloves garlic, crushed
1/2 cup shrimp
1/2 cup shrimp head juice
1/4 cup water
fish sauce to taste

In a pan, saute onion, garlic, and tomato until fragrance. Add shrimp and saute until turns pink. Add all the vegetables, pour in shrimp head juice and water. Simmer until ingredients are crisp-tender. Season with fishsauce. Serve with rice.
