Spicy dried shrimps sambal or more commonly known locally as “hae bee hiam” (alternate spellings: hay bee hiam/hei bi hiam) is a popular condiment in Singapore and South East Asia. I use my base home-made sambal belacan (pictured below) and stir fry it with chopped dried shrimps, shallots and garlic. It is spicy, savoury and so addictive on its own with steamed white rice. It’s also commonly used in stir fries such as sambal long beans.
