This Sambal Belacan Tumis is great as a marinade for steamed mackeral, served with Nasi Lemak, hard boiled egg or stir fried with water spinach.

You could also add 40g of lime juice for additional flavours.

If you would like to tone down the spiciness, deseed the chilies and reduce the number of small dried red chilies.
