4 TB. soy sauce

Directions:
Heat the oil in a frying pan over a medium heat. Add the garlic and shrimp paste, cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly to dissolve the shrimp paste. Add the remaining ingredients, except the lemon juice, and bring to the boil. Reduce the heat and simmer for 10-12 minutes, uncovered, stirring regularly until the sauce reaches a creamy consistency. Add the lemon juice, and stir to combine.

Personal Notes:
Personal Notes:
I use this sauce to make peanut noodles, but you could use it to marinate chicken or dip kebabs in.
Don't be scared by fish sauce! Just don't think about it. My family didn't know it was in there, and they really liked it! If you can't find sambal oelek, I just use sriracha.
