Malaysia has some of the best foods that the world has to offer and I am not even biased. If you have traveled to Malaysia, you would know what I mean. Foodies all become an instant fan with our food. Lucky for little G, I take him back to Malaysia every summer and he agrees that Malaysian food is absolutely delicious.
This Malaysian Belacan Fried Chicken is his favorite dish. His eyes lit up when I told him that I was making him fried chicken for dinner.
Belacan is shrimp paste, which is a key ingredient in Malaysian recipes. Much like fish sauce to Thai and Vietnamese cuisines, belacan is pungent but it adds amazing flavors and taste structure to our food.
For this recipe, you want to use shrimp sauce in a bottle, and not in a block. This Malaysian Belacan Fried Chicken is extremely delicious, much like Thai Fried Chicken. It calls for only a handful of ingredients. Give me a choice, I would always go for Asian fried chicken. Enjoy!
