This dipping sauce is the perfect complement for Shrimp & Scallop Cakes, or for homemade or store-bought Asian dumplings. Sambal badjak and sambal oelek are Indonesian hot chile pastes. You can find them in well-stocked supermarkets and in Asian specialty markets. You could also use Chinese chile paste.

I haven't tried this or some of the other Indonesian recipes but the 1 thing I noticed is they have substituted out Ketjap(Kecap) Manis (or Medja) for Tamari or Soy sauce and use fish sauce instead of the traditional Trassi, a thick (and very smelly but delicious) fish paste. My mother who is Dutch grew up in Indonesia and learned Indonesian cooking 1st hand. Ketjap is thick and sweet to varying degrees but really makes a taste difference. I'm always looking for new Indonesian recipes and my suggestion is try them both ways (especially the Satay). Decide which way you like it the best.
