|Boiled Sweet Potato Leaves with Sambal Belachan|
You can also use the basic sambal belachan recipe with seafood and meat. But the only difference with seafood and meat is that, its best to add assam. So if you want to cook with prawns or squid, you can slice onions and fry it with your sambal belachan. Then you add about 2 TB of assam in it to get the sourish taste.
