    This makes 2 servings, so serving size is 1/2 of the final dish. You can divide by weight or volume (both of which may vary).

    You could use a firm fish or chicken.

    Absolutely delicious. I didn’t alter a thing except leaving the salt and pepper until we tasted the dish. I used Sambal and it made a lovely change from chilli. 5/5 for this dish.

    LOVE the dressing! I'm not sure if this was asking for a dry form of sambal oelek? I used the paste, and when I put it in the oil it starting popping and splashing *like crazy*.
    I had to stand at arm's length to do anything.

    Chili powder is typically a blend of spices including peppers, cumin and garlic. You can use either chili powder of sambal oelek in this recipe.
