This Indonesian Sambal Bajak is very addictive. In an airtight bottle it keeps for weeks (ha ha) in the fridge. I love it on rice, steaks but best on crackers with a good sharp cheddar. I've tried commercial brands but nothing beats this hot, savoury, nutty home made sambal.
A note about the trasi (blachan) - only buy a small amount, it lasts forever and is used only in small amounts.....but it stinks, I keep mine in a ziplock bag in the freezer.
I've cooked this several times and just love it, so long as the squid is very dry you can flour in advance, lay out single layer, cover and refrigerate for up to 2 hours. It's a great starter for Thai steamed fish or Malay fish curry.
