This recipe is medium hot, so use the chilis according to your taste! I also use it on my sushi, egg rolls, and spring rolls, and it is incredible..."

Tips & Variations

I made this sauce to go with one of Linda's other recipes "Chicharrones De Pollo". The combo went very well. This sauce would go well with many other Asian dishes as it has an authentic taste. Thank you LindasBusyKitchen for developing a winner!

I started off with 1 tablespoon sambal oelek and it was plenty spicy enough for us, but otherwise made as the recipe stated. I had this delicious sauce with your egg rolls Linda!
