Here we are for another week of Wanderfood Wednesday kindly hosted by Wanderlust and Lipstick.

I’m busy getting ready to head to China on Monday, so this has to be a bit of a quickie. I want to share with you another delicious recipe from the Bumi Bali Cooking School in Ubud. For a half day class the number of dishes we learned to make (and eat)was amazing. I highly recommend this class for all travelers on any budget.

Sambal Udang

This dish, Sambal Udang, featuring prawns was so delicious and easy to make. Here’s the recipe……

5 prawn
1.5 tbls bumbum bali …………………..Here’s the recipe.

1 tbls. palm sugar (you can substitute brown sugar)
2 chilies
1 slice green pepper
1 slice onion
2 kaffir lime leaf (sliced thinly)
1 cup coconut milk
2 tbls oil (palm or coconut)
salt/pepper to taste
1 lime

Marinate the shrimp with lime, salt/pepper for one hour in fridge. Fry in 2 tbls. oil. Turn shrimp when red on bottom.
Add chilies, green pepper, and onions
Add half of coconut milk
Add bumbum bali, kaffir leaves, sugar and cook for 2-3 minutes
Add remainder of coconut milk.
When the sauce is thickened it ready to serve.

This is a fantastic dish to serve over rice.

  9. Bali has a great variety of food, not only local food but also dishes from all parts of the world as foreigners flock to Bali to set up restaurants. This dish looks delicious but I would suspect that there are lots of variations in this recipe.
