First, I would like to take this opportunity to wish all the Daddies out there a Happy Father's Day...especially to my WB and my friend Arthur from Sarawak :)
Sarawak Laksa...mmmmm just the thought of it makes me salivate again. Arthur of Still Crazy After All These Years gifted me a packet of sambal laksa from Sarawak when he came to Penang to meet up his blogger friends last December. He is such a great person...knowing I love to cook, he flew over bringing this packet of sambal all the way from Sibu , Sarawak. How thoughtful of him :) Thanks Arthur for this delicious sambal paste. I have been wanting to cook this but due to so many church activities and hectic weekends, I was not able to cook this Sarawak Laksa till yesterday morning :)
I asked him how to prepare this laksa and he told me to follow as he had posted one on his blog and he told me that if I have dried shrimps sambal, add some to the bowl of sarawak laksa. This laksa tasted different from those we have in Penang. This is more like curry in taste. I added some basil leaves for extra flavor and a squeeze of calamansi makes it delicious.
this is the sambal paste...
that Arthur gave me :)
filter the soup before adding the coconut milk
I cooked rice vermicelli to go with the sarawak laksa
and garnishes it with chicken meat, shrimps,
hard boiled egg , basil leaves and dried shrimps
sambal and calamansi juice
this is the homemade dried shrimps sambal
that I made for Wild Boar...he loves the sambal
in his bowl of Sarawak laksa :)
Thanks Arthur for this Sambal Paste
without it I will not have the chance
to taste this sarawak laksa....
To all Daddies out there...
Have a wonderful and blessed Father's Day with your family !!
