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!

Crunching on them transports me back to KL, having nasi lemak for breakfast! They’re also great as toppings for other home cooked meals or as an indulgent snack!
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.
