Ginisang Sayote

Ginisang Sayote or Sauteed Chayote is another Filipino dish that is easy to cook and requires a few ingredients only - chayote and shrimp/prawns. I've seen and tasted a lot of variations for this dish. Some would use ground pork, some would add tomato, and some would even add carrots.

Ginisang Sayote


  • 2 tablespoons cooking oil
  • 500g chayote, peeled and chopped
  • 1/2 cup shrimps, shelled and deveined
  • 1 clove garlic, crushed and chopped
  • 1/4 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup water
  • salt or fish sauce to taste
  1. Heat oil and fry the garlic until brown.
  2. Add the onion and stir fry until the onion is translucent.
  3. Add the shrimps and saute a bit until half cooked.
  4. Pour the water and add the chayote.
  5. Season with salt/fish sauce, cover and simmer until the chayote is a tender.
