Spicy Shrimp (Sambal Tumis Udang)

I love spicy food and seafood!! If you're my regular reader you know I'm a seafood and spicy food freak who can eat those food in daily basic. One of my favorite spicy seafood is Sambal Shrimp..I used sambal tumis to make Sambal shrimp.It's taste really scrumptious ,luscious and heavenly delicious !!

1 lb large shrimp,shelled and deviened
1 tbsp tamarind powder
1/2 cup water
1 tbsp sugar
salt to taste
1 large Bombay onion,peeled and sliced
1 stalk cilantro
1 tbsp corn or vegetable oil


1:Heat medium large skillet or pan with oil at medium heat.When pan is hot ,add sliced onion and sambal tumis .Stir-fry for 2-3 minutes before toss in clean shrimp,tamarind powder,sugar and salt.

2:Use spatula to stir the ingredients,add in water and mix well.Cook for 5-8 minutes or until the shrimp cooked. (Do not overcooked shrimp,it's tend to get tough!!)

3:Check in the seasoning,toss in cut cilantro and dish out.Serve warm with rice or noodle.
