I made so many sambal pastes at home and have at least a few jars of each type for different cooking. Today I use my home made sambal olek to do this.

This is not how its done outside(hawker centres)..but its the way I fix it for myself since I don't have the same kitchen tools like the hawker centres.

Ultimately, the taste is even better..controlled on salt and oil levels..YUMS!




Ingredients
500g Sting ray(part of a fin)
60g sambal olek(see recipe below)
juice from 2 small limes.
2 petals from torch ginger(rojak flower)

2 tbsp cooking oil

Method:
1. Heat up the griddle pan with cooking oil
2. Place sting ray fin down and fry for 5 mins.
3. Using a pair of kitchen tongs, fill/turn over and continue to pan fry for 5 mins.


4. Once it turns golden brown and crispy, add sambal sauce, sliced torch ginger flower petals.
5. Leave it to cook for about 3 minutes, turning over the fin just to coat with the sauce.
6. Serve on a plate, squeeze lime juice over it..garnish with springs onions and freshly sliced chilli.

Great with rice...!
