Hae Bee Hiam

Hae Bee Hiam or Spicy dried shrimp  is a nyonya and favourite recipe that I cooked most of the time. It's a base for so many dishes like haebeehiam long beans, haebeehiam ladies fingers, laksa and sambal kang kong . It can be serve with rice, porridge and even for sandwiches.

Hae Bee Hiam


20gms dried chillies (soaked in hot water)
200 gms  dried prawns   (soaked )
1 large onion (sliced)
4 cloves garlics
1 tsp belachan

Method: Blend the chillies, garlics, onions and belachan.
                Blend or chopped the dried prawns.
                Heat 2 tbsps oil in a pan and fry the chillies first.
                Fry until oil seeps thru then add in 1/4 tsp salt, 1 tsp sugar and the dried prawns and continue to fry until dry over a small fire.
                At this stage the hae bee will all separate and not clump together.
                Then it's time to turn off the fire and let it cool before storing into sterilised bottles.
                (Add  more oil to fry if you think it's too dry)
