Binagoongang Baboy is a simple yet delicious dish commonly tasting salty as a result of its shrimp paste ingredient. The saltiness can, however, be reduced by adding sugar. Variations such as the addition of  green beans, carrots, eggplant etc. can be used. It can also be made spicier with the addition of chili peppers. You will not consider your diet when the dish is eaten with rice!
