Recipe : Sambal Belachan (Makes 1 small bowl)
Sambal Belachan is a delicious and extremely popular condiment which is commonly found in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. It is a spicy chilli based sauce with a hint of sourness and a very distinct smell from the Belachan (shrimp paste)! 
This sauce goes very well with stir-fried noodle dishes, rice and vegetables such as Okra (lady’s fingers). 
Those living in Western countries can purchase Belachan from any asian grocery store nearby. 
INGREDIENTS:
4 tbsps of Chilli Garlic Sauce
1 tsp of Belachan (shrimp paste)
Juice from 2 lime wedges
METHOD: 
1. Mix all ingredients together until well combined. 
2. Serve cold. 
* SOUS-CHEF’S NOTE:
If you prefer a more sour sambal sauce, squeeze the juice from an additional lime wedge.
If you are a fan of spicy food, add more of the chilli garlic sauce. 
Do not add too much belachan because the sauce will be very salty and stinky if you do. 
This sauce can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 1 week and is always served cold.
