As promised, here is another recipe using the super versatile sambal goreng. If you are interested at preparing a multi purpose sauce that can be used in many dishes, you should check the recipe out. Today I am using fish for this recipe, but you can also use other seafood, like shrimps, squids, even crabs, or make a seafood combo dish. Lately I develop an allergic reaction to shellfish, so I am sticking to fish, but I actually love this dish with shrimps.
For a simpler recipe with sambal goreng, make sure to check my previous recipe on sambal goreng telur. Next time, I will introduce another recipe with sambal goreng as well, so I hope you will set aside some time to make the chili sauce. Stay tune!
