Sambal is a versatile Southeast Asian chile sauce used to season stir-fries, noodles, eggs, meat, seafood and vegetables. It is also enjoyed as a sweet, sour and spicy table condiment. This fresh version, prepared in a blender, accentuates the bright flavor of the chilies and can be prepared in 15 minutes or less.
Place all ingredients in food processor or blender container; cover. Process until coarsely chopped.
Store in clean, tightly covered container or jar in refrigerator up to 2 weeks.
Test Kitchen Tips:
• Fresno chilies are similar in size to the jalapeño. When green they have a mild heat level. As they ripen and turn red, they become hotter.
• Chilies contain capsaicin which can burn your skin. After chopping chilies, wash hands and cutting board thoroughly with warm soapy water. Or wear rubber gloves when handling the chilies.
• Use Fiery Fresh Sambal Sauce to prepare Sambal Noodles with Shrimp and Chinese Broccoli.
