Spicy Sambal Chicken and Shrimp

[Photograph: Yvonne Ruperti]

Notes: Belachan is fermented shrimp paste, a common ingredient in Southeast asian cooking. It can be found in stores that specialize in Southeast Asian ingredients. The small amount of this potent stuff is not overpowering in this dish and adds a layer of pungency, but it can be omitted if you'd like.
