Crispy Anchovies and Wok-Roasted Peanuts
The perfect savory beer snack!
Crunchy and appetizing, these crispy anchovies and roasted peanuts are one of the four must-have accompaniments to Malaysia's national dish of nasi lemak. Serve a bowl of them as an unusual South East Asian nibble at parties, or sprinkle some on any rice dish to add a unique salty bite!

Once upon a time when I was a wee child, my school principal banned all snacks (chips, crackers, chocolate) at the cafeteria because she wanted to promote healthy food for kids. She was a woman of vision. I admire her greatly. But I also love snacks. So we found an alternative: fried anchovies and peanuts doused with sambal, sold in a clear plastic bag. When I had Sam's crispy anchovies and sambal together, I was instantly transported to my childhood. It's a stressful time right now and this was the comfort food that I craved.
My fiancé and I thoroughly enjoyed the Sambal!!!! It has the perfect mix of sweet and savoury. We will definitely be ordering more. Thanks again, Sam!
I got addicted to this stuff after trying it with Sam's main dishes and had to buy a couple tubs of it so I could add it to everything. Got a double order of sambal as well since the two go together so great. I added this and the sambal to the noodles I ordered from Sam, to rice, to salad, to eggs...I've only had it for three days but I might run out before getting to try it on more. I grew up eating dried anchovies but usually prepare them the korean (sweet spicy sticky) way. These anchovies and peanuts are familiar enough to be comforting but also very different--satisfyingly savory, crunchy, and nutty.
