Stir-fry Sambal Shrimp with Mango

I love spicy food, I must add spicy spices or pepper in any of my meal if possible.Hubby won't eat any spicy food I cooked but he don't mind I cooked my favourite food at home.Well,I guess that the Malaysian in me.As you all know this summer I cooked few containers of homemake-fried-sambal-belacan and store it in the freezer for winter .This time I would like to cook with kaffir lime leaves which I have ample in stock.You must wonder why I have alots of kaffir lime leaves,thanks to Gertruda who kindly send a huge amount of the special and exotic flavor leaves to me.Thank very much,my friend:) Here is my Stir-fry Sambal Shrimp and Mango

20 pc shrimp(clean and deviened)

1 mango(peel and cut cube)

1 onion (peel and cut cube)

1/2 red bell pepper(cut cube)

1/2 green bell pepper(cut cube)

5-6 pc kaffir lime leaves(daun limau purut )

1 tbsp sugar

1 tsp salt

1 tsp tamarind powder

1 tbsp cooking oil

2 tbsp sambal belacan


1:Wash,clean and cut all vegetables,mango and shrimp,set aside.

2:Prepare skillet or wok at high heat with oil,add in sambal belacan,kaffir lime and shrimp,fry until the shrimp curl,then quickly add in mango,follow by all the vegetables.Reduce heat to medium,then quickly add in sugar,salt and tamarind powder.Give a quick stir to mix well but not overcooked the vegetables and shrimp.

3:Adjust the seasoning to your taste before remove from heat.Dish out and serve warm with rice .


I didn't add any water coz I prefer to taste thicker sambal paste on the shrimp and crunchy vegetables.If you like more gravy,add in some water to dilute the paste.
