Spicy Sambal Shrimp
February 15, 2017

I needed to make dinner and I had Sambal Oelek and Uncle Ben's Rice in the fridge, along with frozen Trader Joe's shrimp. I thought, "What can I do with this?" and randomly found this recipe. Hurrah for random recipes! Really delicious and I will cook it again, probably soon. 1. Don't use Uncle Ben's rice, save that for Thanksgiving or dinner with your parents. This would taste great with basmati rice or jasmine. 2. I did not have green onions and look forward to throwing them in next time! 3. I used a 1/3 cup of the Sambal Oelek and even that was almost too spicy for me. In the future, I'll take it down a notch or two - maybe a 1/4 cup. The lesson here? Adjust to your taste and heat level. And if you can handle the 1/2 cup of Sambal, good on you! 4. So much butter in this recipe! Which makes it super yummy but not that super healthy. I'll be swapping some of the butter out for olive, coconut, or even avocado oil.
