Sambal oelek is most commonly used as a condiment to accompany rice and noodle dishes. It brings an enjoyable heat and depth of flavour to marinades, and is a great addition to seafood sauces. Sambal oelek is a very important ingredient in Malaysian dishes – with delicacies ranging from sambal-stuffed fish to sambal squid, salmbal eggs and sambal beans.
