Shrimp drying in the sun
The first step in making Thai shrimp paste is to spread the shrimp out on plastic or fiberglass mats to dry in the sun. AT night they are gathered and stored in jars for the night. They'll be put to dry in the sun each day until the shrimp disintegrate and dry from pink to a dark purplish brown.
