Hay Bee Hiam (Spicy Dried Shrimps Sambal)
Spicy Dried Shrimps Sambal Recipe
Do not chop/grind the dried shrimps too finely so that the sambal has a slightly chunky texture.
Prep Time: 10 mins
Cook Time: 10 mins
- In a wok, heat the oil. Add (A) and sambal belacan. Stir fry Stir fry until dry and fragrant.
- Season with salt with needed. I did not add salt because my home made sambal belachan is already nicely salted. Serve with steamed rice or use for stir-fries.
Noob Cook Tips
- Belacan is pungent smelling. Open your windows and remove all laundry (if you have them in the kitchen) when you’re frying this dish.
- If you're using store-bought sambal and it's not spicy enough, add chilli padi to the shrimp paste at (A) for more heat.
