3 tbsp sambal belachan
1 heaped tbsp caster sugar
6 tbsp calamansi lime juice
2 tbsp light soy sauce
½ tsp salt
* Mix all ingredients together in a bowl until the sugar dissolves and set aside.
150g medium size prawns
60g shallots (sliced thinly then loosened to rings)
2 tbsp toasted groundnuts (coarsely chopped)
2 tbsp kerisik (toasted grated coconut)
5 sprigs fresh coriander. Only the stalk is used and these should be cut into 2.5cm strips. Tear the strips halfway and place it in cold water, this curls the strips and makes a nice little garnish.
