Food street always the best! That’s what I love about Indonesian culinary. So back in my hometown, Jakarta, there is this seafood stall I always visit and my favourite order is always squid / shrimp/ with Padang Sauce. Loving the heat of sauce!
500 gr Seafood Marinara mix (I just use the mussels, shrimps and squids).
4 shallot, thinly sliced
2 cloves of garlic, thinly sliced
3 tablespoon chilli sauce
2 tablespoons tomato sauce
2 tablespoons oyster sauce
Mixed herbs, salt, black pepper, to taste
Coconut virgin oil
1 tsp tapioca (or any flour), dissolve in water to thickened the sauce
In the wok heat the over medium heat, add shallots, garlic onions, until fragrant
Add shellfish, squid, shrimp, stir for 1 minute
Add about 200ml of water.
Add mixed herbs, salt, pepper and all sauces.
Stir well for another minute.
Taste it to correct the flavor.
Finally add the flour solution let the sauce slightly thickened.
My advice, just cook the seafood for not more than 5 minutes, we don’t want to overcook them 🙂
