Shrimp Paste Sambal (Sambal Terasi)

yield : 6 Servings
ingridients :
Stephen Ceideburg
2 tb Ground chilli
1 sm Onion
1 ts Shrimp Paste, lightly grilled
Salt, to taste
1/2 Lemon, juice only
directions :

Pound finely the chilli, onion and shrimp paste with salt to taste. Add lemon juice and blend well. Place in a bowl. This sambal is well known throughout the archipelago. However I recommend it only for addicts. If you want to make Indonesian newcomers feel at home, serve it with vegetables, plain boiled rice and with a grill. Anchovy fillets, about 2 pieces, may be substituted for shrimp paste if you wish.
