Is sautéed shrimp paste bad for pregnant women?

Shrimp paste — fermented, ground shrimp that is sun dried and then cut into fist-sized rectangular blocks — is a common ingredient in Southeast Asian and Southern Chinese cuisine. Shrimp paste is often known for the region it comes from, since production techniques and quality vary from village to village. Because of these variations in production and where you purchase the shrimp paste, check with your physician before you consume it.
