Spicy Sambal Shrimp Stir-Fry
This quick shrimp stir-fry dinner has so much flavor, it’s hard to believe it comes together in just 20 minutes. The key is in spicy sambal oelek sauce, an Indonesian condiment made from crushed chilies, vinegar, and other flavoring ingredients like garlic or sugar. Think of it as sriracha’s thicker, less acidic cousin. Mixed with salty soy, tart lime juice, and sweet honey, the sambal becomes a luxurious, flavorful sauce to coat the shrimp and veggies. It’s simple and yet sophisticated without standing over the stove for hours—just what great weeknight meals are made of.
