Hae Bee Hiam (Spicy Dried Shrimp Sambal)

Hae Bee Hiam is one of my favourite to satisfy my craving for SPICY thing. Hae Bee Hiam is also known as spicy dried shrimp sambal. It goes well with rice, bread, noodles. It acts as good topping on vegetables too! I love to “kiap” this spicy shrimp floss in between my bread as breakfast. You may prepare a portion of this and keep it in the fridge and use it to prepare quick meal with it.
This is Superb Spicy!
