Chris Wan’s Prawn Sambal

There’s nothing I enjoy better than gathering with a small bunch of food loving friends over lunch. And when one of those food loving friends – reputed to cook a mean prawn sambal – called me over for a nasi lemak feast, it was an invitation I could not refuse.

Pork Ribs Rendang

She prepared a large pot of pork ribs rendang, fried kangkung and prawn-cockles-petai sambal, while I brought over a slab of siew yuk which my mother in-law prepared. And what a feast we had. As expected, the prawn sambal was really good.

Fried Kangkung

I cannot stand how some Chinese households toss onion slices, chilli and prawns into the wok; and call it prawn sambal. :shock: I had my fair share of sambal shock from these people. This version was nothing like that.

The Nasi Lemak Feast

Spicy, richly flavoured and pungent from the petai, it’s been a while since I had good prawn sambal. She also added large cockles into the sambal. Good stuff! I ate more than I should, including the petai despite not being a fan. Hehe!

Round 1

The pork ribs rendang was prepared the day before and the ribs, coated with thick rendang gravy, were oh-so-tender. While everyone stopped, I carried on. I considered this my re-introduction to solid food and went all out. Om nom nom nom … :D
