What is sambal oelek?

Sambal is an Indonesian chili sauce/pasta that is made from a mix of chili peppers, garlic, ginger, shallots, palm sugar, and lime juice. It is great to add spice and flavor to Asian-inspired dishes like this one. However, it’s important to note that some of these sauces contain shrimp paste for those that are vegan. Personally, I’m okay with cheating a bit if it means using flavorful sauces like sambal oelek. You can however find some vegan-friendly versions, or make your own!
