Hot & Spicy Sambal Seafood 麻坡叁巴苏东虾

Another popular dish served at most Chinese Restaurants in Muar. Muar is a small and yet extremely busy town at the Northern part of Johor and it is just located next to the river of Muar. Plenty of fresh seafood supply available daily and that is why otak-otak is so popular around here. This dish might look extremely hot & spicy but it is actually NOT at all. You will surprise how lovely the combination turns out ! Please read on for more.

Method :
(1)  wash prawns and squid, then peel off the prawn shell on the middle part only. And then skinned the squid and cut into ring shape. As picture shown below. You may trim off the prawns' head the shape part and it really looks good.
(2)  now, bring a pot of water to boil then stir in the squid for 2 minutes. Drain off boiling water and transfer squid into ice water. Drain of ice water once the squid is completely cooled.
