Udang Bumbu Rendang (Shrimp Rendang)

{{totalReview}}
Udang Bumbu Rendang is a traditional cuisine of the Minangkabau people originating from West Sumatra. Though commonly made with beef tenderloin in coconut milk, this recipe replaces the beef with shrimps. This delightfully fragrant and spice-filled paste really compliments the succulent shrimps. A wonderful substitute to accommodate pescatarians.

Directions

  1. Making the Rendang

    • Blend the rendang spices into a paste. Then saute the paste with pandan leaves, turmeric leaves, lemongrass, galangal, kaffir lime leaves and bay leaves.

    • Cook the spices for 20 minutes over medium heat until fragrant, stirring constantly.

    • Add the spice powders and seasoning and stir fry until well blended.

    The cooking process of the rendang spices requires patience because the rendang spices need to be constantly stirred for the sauce to thicken.
