Sambal Udang 參巴蝦 Prawns In Spicy Sauce - "Malaysian Monday 13"



I made some sambal tumis for a friend and saved some to make this delicious sambal prawns for our dinner. There must be hundreds of recipes for sambal prawns and this is one that I grew up eating. Serve this as part of a Malaysian meal, it is also a perfect side dish to serve with nasi lemak. Come on make a big batch of sambal tumis and you will be able to prepare this and other tasty dishes such as sambal telur and mee goreng whenever you feel like. This is another family recipe of my nanny Fatimah, terima kasih Kak Timah!
P.S Come back next week for my first nasi lemak post.



serve 4 as part of a Malaysian meal
you'll need;
1 kg prawns, peeled and butterflied
1 cup of sambal tumis
1 onion, sliced
5 tbs of tamirind concentrate
5 tbs of coconut milk
salt to taste



Coconut milk and tamarind concentrate.



Prepare the prawns.



Saute sliced onion til soften then add in the sambal tumis, continue to fry for a minute.



Next add the prawns and cook for a minute or two then add in the tamarind concentrate.



Finally pour in the coconut milk and cook til the prawns are fully cooked but be careful not to over cook the prawns. Check for seasonings.
