Sambal prawns and edamame came as a surprise to me. They actually combine well. Both the prawns and edamame are tender and delicious and with the hot and spicy sambal, it tastes really good. I love prawns, or shrimps, so this has now become another favourite of mine.
I only learned about edamame when I came to Scotland. A friend introduced me to it. I fell in love with it the first time I tried it. Best of all, my family likes it too. Edamame is the young soya beans and are green in colour. They are very nutritious and delicious even boiled plain. Sometimes I do that and eat as a snack when watching TV. Sometimes I made a vegetarian appetiser as in Best Vegetarian Appetizer.
This is a simple recipe. You can cook more sambal and keep in the fridge and use it for other dishes too or eat it as it is with rice or noodles. Sambal is very popular in Malaysia, Singapore and Indonesia. Every dish seems to become very delicious with sambal.
