As mentioned in my earlier posting sambal is very versetile to mix with many ingredients. Here are varieties of dried fish that is used a lot in sambal dish.
This is again the recipe of sambal :
Basic Sambal Paste :
15 Red Chili (reduce the number or remove the seeds for milder taste)
1 Fresh tomatoes
1 clv Garlic
5 clv Shallot
1 cm Ginger (optional)
2 tbs Cooking oil
Pinch of Sugar
Salt to taste
- What need to do now is frying the dried fish till crispy and mix with sambal. Best to eat immediately as the fish will go soft and chewy.
- If we want to keep the dried fish sambal crispy, replace tomato (sambal recipe) with vinegar and sautee the sambal even longer in low heat to reduce water content. Adding 1 tbs sugar more will make it even longer crispy ( Refer to Spicy Crispy Medan Anchovy).
