    danadooley's Note:

    Based on the Malay dish called Sambal Udang. Really spicy but not TOO hot and yummy with white rice or coconut rice and thickly sliced cucumbers to cool your tongue. It doesn't look impressive but given the ease of the recipe and the small number of ingredients, I think you will find it surprisingly flavourful.

      I am giving this recipe a 4 star rating because it really was very simple to prepare and was a nice meal. As promised, it wasn't hot at all - I was expecting more of a kick to it and that the flavours present would be stronger. As is, it would be a very nice side to a spiced up bbq'd steak. I did not add the sugar - never do. I think using dry white wine instead of the 1/4 cup of water would help to enhance the flavours. Next time I make it I think I might kick it up with some cumin, ginger and a bit more lime juice. Thank you for sharing this recipe!
