(Hints and tips)

Mama Tan’s Sambal Paste goes really well with seafood baked dishes as well so why not try that too? Make a foil parcel, and add any seafood you fancy, with all the above ingredients without adding water or oil in a bowl, mix well. Seal the parcel and bake in the oven on high heat for about 10-15 minutes, or until cooked.
